Seminar: light sheet microscopy

Dr. Malte Wachsmuth

Cell Biology & Biophysics Unit, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg, Germany

Observing single molecules with a light-sheet microscope

As part of the workshop on light sheet fluorescence microscopy, the Centre for Systems Medicine is pleased to announce a seminar about this thriving imaging technique. Dr. Wachsmuth performed his PhD research at the Division Biophysics of Macromolecules, German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in 2002 and gained several years of expertise in imaging techniques working for Leica Microsystems, University of Heidelberg, and as group leader of the Cell Biophysics Group, Institut Pasteur Korea, Seoul, South Korea. Since 2007 he is scientist in the Cell Biology & Biophysics Unit, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg.

In his current research, Dr. Wachsmuth and his team focus on extending and integrating imaging modalities, building new instrumentation for visual biochemistry and the structure and dynamics of the cell nucleus.

More information can be found on his research homepage.

The talk is free and open to everyone and will be held in Newman Study, RCSI on the 21st of November 2013 at 2 pm.
