Seeing is believing in Heidelberg
09-12 Oct 2019
Jurgen presented a poster at the biannual international microscopy conference at the European Molecular Biology Laboratories (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany. The conference, "Seeing is believing-imaging the molecular processes of life." focused on the latest advancements in microscopy, with keynote lectures by two Nobel prize laureates (Stefan Hell and W.E. Moerner).
Congratulations Jurgen for presenting a poster titled "Inducing lethal autophagy in brain cancer- novel insights gained through microscopy", at the EMBL conference!
Research visit at RAL
28 June – 30 July 2019
Dr André du Toit and Jurgen Kriel (PhD student) had the great opportunity of traveling to the Rutherford-Appleton Laboratories in Oxford (UK) for a research visit, allowing them to build a custom light-sheet microscope. There they were able to gain some hands on experience with 3D dual single molecule localisation microscopy (SMLM)!
