New MRC grant for next generation light microscopy development

Medical Research Council

 

The aim of the programme is to establish national centers of excellence in microscopy research and to make available to life scientists the latest technological advances in biological imaging.  As part of the 1.9M programme, the Laser Analytics Group will develop novel modalities of STED (Stimulated Emission Depletion) microscopy with the inventors or STED, Prof. Stefan Hell’s group in Göttingen and apply these techniques to problems in neurodegeneration. The grant is a major boost to the Cambridge Advanced Imaging Centre (CAIC) initiative where technologies developed will be made available for use across the university.
