  • 2022/12/01: Our work on Lipid Nanopraticles for mRNA delivery started in Dresden @MPICBG is featured in The Year in Cell Biology: 2022 of the Journal of Cell Biology. We are building on this work with our project in the CRC Polytarget analysing the nanoscale cellular distributing of polymeric nanoparticles and their cargo. Our fantastic student Lukas Harder is pushing this together with polytarget partners.
  • 2022/11/04: Our manuscript with the Holthoff Lab @UKJ is now online at @biorxiv. Andreas managed to tune his #structuredillumination based #stereophotogrammetry system to record mice whiskers with 3D micrometer resolution for the first time. This wat, we could contribute to understand the ovelap between the visual and tactile field of view in mice. Fantastic paper and much more to come from Andreas in this direction. Congratulations!
  • 2022/10/15: Kristina and Matthew are joining us for their Research Labworks and Master Thesis'. Kristina will work with Andreas and the Holthoff Lab @UKJ to further optimize our new structured illumination based 3D reconstruction approach of mice whisker. Matthew is working on rel time computation of large 3D point cloud data sets, both for microscopy and 3D measurements. Welcome and have Fun!
  • 2022/08/25: Gregor has been selected for this years EMBO Practical Course Computational Optical Biology in Oeiras, Portugal and awarded a Travel Grant from EMBO! Congratulations and have fun!
  • 2022/08/17: Steev successfully defended his Master Thesis on smart glasses with Tooz Technologies and will continue working with them as a full time employee. Congratulations and all the best!
  • 2022/07/18: Andreas' paper on "Miniaturization of a coherent monocular structured illumination system for future combination with digital holography" is now published in Light: Advanced Manufacturing. Congratulations! Much more to come soon. paper

  • 2022/04/01: Lukas joins us as a Research Assistant and for his Bachelor Thesis on super-high resolution imaging of endosomal compartments. Welcome
  • 2022/03/18: Our recent paper on mRNA escape from endosomal recycling tubules, analysed by multi-colour dSTORM in the Journal of Cell Biology is featured in this weeks issue of Science! Wow! #mindblown
  • 2022/03/15: Andreas' paper on "Miniaturization of a coherent monocular structured illumination system for future combination with digital holography" has been accepted in Light: Advanced Manufacturing. Congratulations! Much more to come soon.
  • 2022/03/09: Our straight-forward & accessible-for-all workflow to quantitatively map and analyse the 3D-distribution of (T-) cell surface receptors with #isotropic nanometer resolution, while preserving the native membrane topography is now published in Communications Biology
  • 2021/11/01: Andreas joins the group as a postdoctoral Researcher after successfully finishing his PhD with Prof. Kowarschik. Andreas is an expert in macroscopic 3D measurement based on structured illumination and will broaden the scope of the group. Fun things to come I am sure! Welcome!
  • 2020/11/01: Gregor gives the new Franke Lab a kick start in joing me right away. Gregor is starting his PhD thesis #FirstPhDStudent. Welcome and have fun - let's do this!

Single-Molecule Blinking of Fluorescent Dyes

Single-Molecule Blinking of Fluorescent Dyes - Every spot represents a nanometer size dye molecule, imaged in a wide-field microscope onto a EMCCD chip. Detecting single molecules allows us to create super-resolution fluorescence images way beyond the Abbe diffraction limit.
