Si will work on photostabilization of organic fluorophores in the framework of her small project for the Top Master in Nanoscience – Welcome!
The "Molecular Microscopy Research Group" is part of the "Single-molecule Biophysics"-unit at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials (University of Groningen, The Netherlands). We follow a question-driven approach to understand mechanistic aspects of membrane transport proteins such as ABC transporters linking their structure with function. Our main tools are fluorescence and single-molecule microscopy (confocal & epi-fluorescence/TIRF), Förster-resonance energy-transfer as well localization-based super-resolution imaging (STORM/PALM). We are further active in developing photostable and switchable fluorescent probes as well as (single-molecule) assays to characterize (bio)chemical processes.
Welcome to new group member Anisah Erika Rahayu from ITB Bandung joining for her master project and bye bye to Lourens-Jan Ugen who officially finishes his master project… we hope LJ will still be around to keep his exciting projects going…
