UK Research & Innovation Future Leader Fellowship awarded to develop a compact super-resolution microscopy technology

The principal investigator of the Nanoscale Microscopy Group, Dr Izzy Jayasinghe, has been awarded a UKRI Future Leader Fellowship to build a new portable imaging technology which will allow scientists, medical doctors, conservationists and industrial parties to visualise the smallest building blocks of any biological sample from any location. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqkzDOiWVXs/ The UK and other governments … Continue reading UK Research & Innovation Future Leader Fellowship awarded to develop a compact super-resolution microscopy technology

New paper on “Enhanced Expansion Microscopy” and application on 3D and chemical in situ mapping of RyR

We demonstrate the ability to exploit in-plane resolution of ~ 15 nm and axial resolution of ~ 35 nm by combining X10 Expansion Microscopy with Airyscan 3D imaging. Expansion Microscopy is the newest of super-resolution imaging methods which allows finer details of samples to be visualised with relatively conventional fluorescence imaging techniques by physically expanding … Continue reading New paper on “Enhanced Expansion Microscopy” and application on 3D and chemical in situ mapping of RyR

Nanoscale Microscopy Group celebrate Physiology Friday

On the 12 October, Miriam ran an event funded by The Physiological Society to promote Physiology Friday at The University of Leeds. The aim of this outreach event was to raise awareness of how technological advancements in microscopy are improving our understanding of how human physiology can change within health and disease at the cellular … Continue reading Nanoscale Microscopy Group celebrate Physiology Friday
