Analytical Bionanoscopy - study of morphology and properties of biomacromolecules and biological systems using different methods of scanning probe microscopy with applications to
- molecular mechanism of protein crystal growth
- morphology and properties of bacterial cells
- conformational changes of DNA in the presence of surfactants
- structure and properties of viruses, molecular processes during viral infection

Nanoscopy of Polymers - study of properties and structure of nanocomposite and functional polymers, which are of interest for modern material science, biology and medicine
Instrumentation in Nanoscopy - development of scanning tunneling and atomic force microscopes, software
Education in Nanotechnology and Nanoscopy - development of distant education technologies (open learning, probe microscopy practical studies via Internet, multimedia presentations), lectures in nanoscopy and nanotechnology, composition of SPM bibliography databases.
