Jasper is leaving the Netherlands for a research stay in the Blum-lab in California – good luck and we are looking forward to your return!
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 (single-molecule) assays for (bio)chemical processes as well as photostable and switchable fluorescent probes.
Alex Fast returned to UCI – enjoy the sun! Marijn de Boer is back for his long master project – welcome!
