After recently defending his PhD thesis titled “Pinpointing macromolecular motion. Single-particle tracking fluorescence microscopy advances and applications” with distinction (cum laude!), Koen Martens left the group for a postdoc position in the lab of Dr. Ulrike Endesfelder (CMU, Pittsburgh). All the best, Koen, you will be missed!
A big welcome to Martijn Gobes and Cleo Bagchus who both joined the group for their MSc thesis. Martijn will improve our computational workflow for super-resolution microscopy (his first ImageJ plugin for fast temporal median filtering is available here). Cleo will continue our work on single-particle tracking in live cells together with Simon van de Els, who joined the lab as a (semi) post-doctoral research assistant.
Last but not least, we welcome Niels Zijlstra as a guest scientist from the Cordes lab in Munich. Niels will work on combining the miCube platform with spectrally resolved super-resolution imaging.
