The Loogerlab primarily makes protein-based tools for the biosciences through structure-guided design and directed evolution.This highly innovative lab is perhaps best known fordevelopment of the GCaMP sensors, but the lab has developed many tools to enable other technologies.

Work on viral capsid proteins has evolutionizedretrograde neuronal labeling and has been licensed by a pharmaceutical company to develop as a human gene therapy vector.
