Fast multifunctional microscopy for photoelectrochemistry and bioimaging

Uncategorized

Laboratory of Nanoscience for Energy Technologies (Prof. Giulia Tagliabue) and Laboratory for Bio- and Nano-Instrumentation (Prof. Georg Fantner) Scanning probe methods – and in particular, the combination of scanning ion conductance microscopy (SICM) and scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) – have emerged as unique tools for studying materials and mechanisms in complex, multistep chemical reactions such (…)

Towards more accurate large-scale gene expression profiles

Uncategorized

Laboratory of Neurodevelopmental Systems Biology (Dr. Gioele La Manno) and Bioimage Analysis and Computational Microscopy (Dr. Martin Weigert) Spatial transcriptomics – a nascent field arising from the combination of cutting-edge microscopy with gene-specific in-situ labeling – can be used to generate large gene expression profiles of messenger RNA. This gives scientists an indication of the (…)

Connecting imaging to mechanical measurements

Uncategorized

Laboratory of Engineering Mechanics of Soft Interfaces (Prof. John Kolinski) and the holder of the Gabriella and Giorgi Cavaglieri Chair in Life Sciences (Prof. Alexandre Persat) When it comes to characterizing mechanics at the cellular scale, the accuracy and precision of current methods are still limited. In this project, Prof. Kolinski and Prof. Persat will (…)

High-speed multimodal super-resolution microscopy

Uncategorized

Advanced Quantum Architecture Lab (Prof. Edoardo Charbon) and Laboratory of Nanoscale Biology (Prof. Aleksandra Radenovic) In this project, scientists from two EPFL labs will combine their know-how to develop a new high-speed microscopy system that can reveal single-molecule dynamics with unprecedented detail, including in liquids. The system will also allow scientists to assess how individual (…)

3D nanoscopic imaging of genome ultrastructure in cells

Uncategorized

Laboratory of Systems Biology and Genetics (Prof. Bart Deplancke) and Laboratory of Biophysical Chemistry of Biomolecules (Prof. Beat Fierz) Each human cell contains around two meters of DNA tightly packaged in its nucleus. An exquisite organization is critical to ensure that the DNA can be accessed by the many important genetic processes. This organization is (…)

A more effective 3D-imaging system for Earth System Science and Navigation

Uncategorized

Laboratory for Visual Intelligence for Transportation, or VITA (Prof. Alexandre Alahi) and Extreme Environments Research Laboratory, or EERL (Prof. Julia Schmale) 3D image reconstruction or depth estimation is at the core of applications in navigation as well as Earth system science. Significant advances have been made in the field of computer vision to obtain 3D (…)
