Project Description

Super-resolution microscopy (SRM) is a major frontier technology and is revolutionising our understanding of
the structure and dynamics of cellular organisation. A video-rate SRM imaging facility will be established to bridge the gap between the functional dynamics and structure of living systems at the level of the single molecule. Already, internationally in leading centres, breakthroughs are being made in understanding molecular mechanisms in cancer, infectious diseases and neuropathologies. Beyond purely biomedical considerations, SRM is redefining our knowledge of cellular architecture and will impact on our
understanding of the fundamental biology of all plant, animal and micro organisms.
