… to a bunch of successful students: Matthijs, Si & Anisah who are all done with their thesis! Congrats and thank you very much for your contributions…
The "Molecular Microscopy Research Group" is part of the "Single-molecule Biophysics"-unit at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials (Physics, 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 and structures. If you are interested in our activities, have a look in the research section, the job pages or directly get in touch with Thorben Cordes.
Sarah joins as an exchange student from Saarbrücken in Germany for her master project in chemistry – welcome!
Si will work on photostabilization of organic fluorophores in the framework of her small project for the Top Master in Nanoscience – Welcome!
