molecular microscopy


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). Our research is question-driven and we aim to understand fundamental mechanistic aspects of membrane transport proteins such as ABC-importers.  Our main tools are fluorescence and single-molecule microscopy (confocal & epi-fluorescence/TIRF), Förster-resonance energy-transfer as well super-resolution imaging (STORM/PALM). We are further active in developing (single-molecule) assays as well as photostable and switchable fluorescent probes.
If you are interested in our activities, have a look in the research section, the job pages or directly get in touch with us.
