Congratulations to our friend and collaborator Eric Betzig on his Nobel Prize!  Our image is featured on the New York Times article announcing the Prize.

Galbraith Lab Image Featured in Life:Magnified at Dulles International Airport

Three-color super-resolution structured illumination image of mouse melanoma cell showing invasive actin structure (green), mitochondria (purple), and nuclei (blue).  Image was chosen by NIGMS and ASCB to be part of their exhibit to show life at the cellular level.  

Galbraith Lab is organizing a Saturday

Two micrographs taken by the newest member of the lab Will Voss! Compare the TIRF and PALM images.

Last year the microscopy community lost one of its most talented, devoted, and celebrated microscopists - Mike Davidson. 

Over the past decade, Mike has been instrumental in figuring out the performance characteristics of nearly every fluorescent probe. His lab at Florida State’s National High Magnetic Field Laboratory shared this information on his website establishing Mike as the international reference for fluorescent probe properties.  

He was our friend and colleague and we will miss him.

Quantifying Biology:  Working at the Interface Between Biology and Physics

With funding from the School of Medicine and ASCB the Galbraith lab is  hosting a one day symposium on May 20th, 2014.  Talks in the Old Library, lunch with the speakers for registered participants, and an afternoon QB data slam in the Vollum where post-docs and students compete for cash prizes and free ASCB memberships.  Registration is required, but there is no fee.

All of the outside speakers use multi-disciplinary approaches and principles from the physical sciences to study their biology.  Click on their links to learn about the diverse approaches used in their research.
