Who are we
We like to think of ourselves as optical cell biologists. We focus on addressing biomedical questions by exploiting advancements we develop in optical microscopy. To do so, we create open-technology that pushes the boundaries of cellular imaging. All our research and methods are transparent, reproducible and widely available to researchers. In biology, we tackle broad virology, host-pathogen interactions, immunology and cell signalling questions. We do so by establishing new classes of fluorescent probes, high-speed cell-friendly super-resolution methods and computational modelling approaches that, although designed to answer questions of interest in the lab, have extensive cross-disciplinary applications.
In 2020, we moved the laboratory to Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência from the MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology in University College London, where the group was founded in 2013. Between 2017 and 2020 we’ve had an additional small laboratory at The Francis Crick Institute. Check out our research page to know more about what we do.
