Sjoerd Stallinga – NANOCUBIC – The big picture at the finest scale

Making super detailed 3D images of proteins in living cells with a special light microscope, without damaging those cells. That’s what Sjoerd Stallinga wants to achieve with the ERC Advanced grant. In order to do so, he’s going to scan samples with nanometer precision using a sophisticated 3D light pattern, and calculate the complex image information back to the protein structure with the computer. An approach that requires lots of collaboration between different disciplines.
