What if we could watch biological molecules at work?
During a successful visit to the British Biophysical Society Meeting 2016, group members presented their work, with Florian Ströhl's poster on single molecule translation imaging being awarded the best poster prize.
The work of the Laser Analytics Group was recently presented at the Pint of Science festival.
Two students from the Laser Analytics group were recently featured in the Micro-choreography issue of Interalia Magazine.
Research by the Laser Analytics Group recently published in the Journal Neuron contributes major new insights into the molecular pathology of motor neurone disease (also called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS) and related neurogenerative disesases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
The department of Chemical engineering was awarded a major research contract and a donation from Chinese Health company Infinitus. The event was recognised through a signing ceremony with the University's Vice Chancellor on Wednesday the 3rd of September. The deal is worth more than GBP4.0M and includes a very significant donation towards the construction of the department's new building on the University's West Site.
STED microscopy development for research into molecular mechanisms of disease.
The recent development by the group of a novel reconstruction algorithm for M-SIM features in the top 3 most read papers in the IOP publication Methods and Applications in Fluorescence.
Gabi Kaminski Schierle, who heads biological research activities in the Laser Analytics Group, has been appointed as Lecturer in Molecular Biotechnology at this department - many congratulations!
Four group members presented work from their PhD at the annual Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology Department Graduate Conference. This included talks from two group members and a prize winning poster from Nathan Curry
The International Year of Light celebrates a millennium of advancements in optical science and technology and recognises the importance of light technologies in the lives of each and every one of us
Recent advances in optical microscopy permit researchers to investigate the molecular processes that lead to diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Disease in much greater detail than has been possible only a few years ago.
Watch Florian Ströhl, PhD student in the Laser Analytics group, talk about his latest research in which he outlines the advantages of a new deconvolution algorithm he developed, to analyse multi-spot Structured Illumination Microscopy (mSIM) data.
Prof. Clemens Kaminski was elected as a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA) in recognition of "pioneering work in the development of optical methods for quantifying the kinetics of reactions in chemical and biological systems".
Become a sensor Champion and apply for a fully funded studentship within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications
Congratulations to Dr. Weiwei Cai for being awarded the prestigious Masao Horiba Award!
In an interview for BBC radio Cambridgeshire Claire Michel discusses her research into the propagation of tau aggregates in Alzheimer's disease.
The inventors of single molecule localisation and stimulated emission depletion (STED) super-resolution microscopy were today honoured with the Nobel prize for chemistry. One of the key applications of super-resolution imaging, pioneered by the Laser Analytics Group and mentioned by the Nobel Assembly, is the study of protein aggregation reactions in the context of neurodegenerative diseases.
Award for the most significant contribution to Combustion Research
Laser Group's discovery on amyloid fluorescence features among the 25 most read articles in the Royal Society Publication Analyst.
Whilst attending Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC) Dr. Claire Michel was interviewed by Alzheimer's Research UK with the recording of the interview featuring on the charity's website.
During a successful visit to the Microscience Microscopy Congress in Manchester nine group members presented their work. This included talks from three group members and a prize winning poster by Dr. Romain Laine.
A further contingent of fully funded PhD studentships is available for exceptional students with a background in the natural sciences, engineering or medical sciences from the UK and EU nationals who have studied in the UK for the last three years or who are currently employed in the UK. Application deadline: 3 August 2014.
We are seeking to fill a Senior Teaching Associate position in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology to lead the course development programme for the newly established Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications.
New research by the Laser Analytics Group sheds light on the protein aggregation reactions at the heart of Alzheimer's disease.
Good luck to Nathan, Florian, and Laurie who will be running in the 2014 Bupa London 10K to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK.
The department of Chemical Engineering will host the EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies and Applications which will involve 50 investigators and 20 departments across the University of Cambridge. The programme is strongly supported by leading industries who have committed to the programme with studentships and training.
New modes of optical microscopy offer insights on the nanometre scale, combining the advantages of traditional high resolution methods, such as electron microscopy, with the advantages of using light for probing life and matter.
Kadi Liis Saar and Martin Chan win prize for best student research project for their work on the imaging of protein self assembly reactions.
