… in Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. Congrats to Jasper, Jochem, Matthias, Evelyn and our collaborators from Gerard Roelfes’ and Andreas Herrmann’s groups!
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.
… to a bunch of old and new people: Jochem Smit and Martin Roelfes join as research assistents and Matthijs de Koning starts his Bachelor project!
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!
