molecular microscopy


The "Molecular Microscopy Research Group" is part of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials - an interdisciplinary research institute at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. We follow a question-driven approach to understand molecular mechanisms of fundamental biological processes such as membrane transport. Our experimental tools are and single-molecule fluorescence microscopy and spectroscopy and super-resolution imaging (STORM/PALM, STED). We are further active in developing fluorescent probes and biophysical assays to characterize (bio)chemical processes and structures.
