Since the invention of the first light microscope in 1670, history tell us that new developments in microscopy induce a leap in our understanding of cell biology.
Our moto is to advance state-of-the-art microscopy techniques including quantitative live cell imaging and super resolution (SR) microscopy in order to resolve how molecular machines organize in cells to execute their biological function.
Specifically, we focus on understanding how the ESCRT complex orchestrate in cells to cut membranes. By constantly seeking for new information that will take us closer to understanding the mechanism of ESCRTs in their native environment, we aim to advance both biology and microscopy.
Because the tools that we develop are driven by our experimental needs we are confident that they will be broadly used by cell biologists to study other complex cellular processes. Read more
