Functional and super-resolution imaging of protein self assembly

medimmune

Advanced imaging and sensing technologies, such as superresolution microscopy, cryoelectron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and hyperspectral imaging, amongst others, play a pivotal role in driving developments in biotechnology, neuroscience and pharmacology across many applications and industries.

Optical superresolution microscopy has enabled researchers to view and understand protein self-assembly reactions related to neurodegenerate diseases. State-of-the-art biosensor arrays allow rapid screening of bio-assays in drug development and health screening. These developments are driven through the interdisciplinary collaboration of physicists, engineers, biologists, chemists and physicians.

In collaboration with MedImmune, the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications is inviting applications for up to two fully funded 4-year PhD studentships commencing in October 2015 to work on distinct projects addressing ‘Functional and super-resolution imaging methods to study protein self assembly reactions in the context of disease’.
