Research Synopsis

We focus on advancing the boundaries of optical microscopy, with the aim of establishing novel technologies to address cell biology questions, both in health and disease. We are recognised by our open-source and widely available contributions to the optical microscopy community, as well as our translational work with industry. In cell biology we tackle broad questions through links with collaborating laboratories, in fields such as virology, host-pathogen interactions, immunology, cell signalling and evolution. We do so by establishing new classes of fluorescent probes, high-speed cell friendly super-resolution methods and computational modelling approaches that, although designed to answer questions of interest in the lab, have extensive applications in biology.
