Showcasing the recent and ongoing DNA-PAINT experiments at the Edinburgh Super Resolution Imaging Consortium Symposium

Isuru attended the second annual Edinburgh Super Resolution Imaging Consortium (ESRIC) symposium, held this year at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) of the University of Edinburgh (UoE). His talk on the Molecular-scale imaging of ryanodine receptors at both the cell surfaces and interiors with the adaptation of DNA-PAINT was well-received by a … Continue reading Showcasing the recent and ongoing DNA-PAINT experiments at the Edinburgh Super Resolution Imaging Consortium Symposium

Our research featured on the news of local TV station: ‘Made in Leeds’

On the back of our recent publication in Cell Reports, our research has enjoyed a wide ranging body of TV coverage. This included 20+ online newspapers and science & technology websites. Among this coverage, was a brief recording for the local television station Made in Leeds which was featured on the 6:30pm news on 11/1/2018.  … Continue reading Our research featured on the news of local TV station: ‘Made in Leeds’

Press coverage: “New technique offers ‘perfect window’ to examine causes of heart disease”

Recent work of researchers from the Universities of Exeter, Leeds and Cambridge has been featured in a number of press reports. In particular, the Yorkshire Evening Post refer to the recently published paper in Cell Reports in their statement that “A pioneering new technique could boost the understanding of the causes of heart disease, a study … Continue reading Press coverage: “New technique offers ‘perfect window’ to examine causes of heart disease”

New paper “True Molecular Scale Visualization of Variable Clustering Properties of Ryanodine Receptors” now out on Cell Reports

Our latest paper together with Christian Soeller’s group is now available with open access. In this paper, we utilise the recently-described DNA-PAINT technique to achieve optical resolutions of ~10 nm as a clear improvement over the more widely used dSTORM super-resolution technique.  With the improved resolution, we were able to visualise and ‘count’ individual proteins … Continue reading New paper “True Molecular Scale Visualization of Variable Clustering Properties of Ryanodine Receptors” now out on Cell Reports
