Welcome to the Imaging CoE
The Imaging CoE is all about developing and using innovative microscopy and imaging techniques to observe the details of how immune systems function at a molecular level.
Journey to the centre of the cell: nano-rods and worms wriggle best
Australian researchers have applied a new microscopy technique that allows them to monitor the movements of nanoparticles through the inside of a cell They found that drug delivery is more effective when nanoparticles can …
Inorganic polyphosphate (polyP) is a polymer that is widespread in biology and has many functions. In particular, it is secreted by activated platelets and accelerates blood clotting.
IMMUNE BREAKTHROUGH: UNSCRATCHING POISON IVY’S RASH
We all know that a brush with poison ivy leaves us with an itchy painful rash. Now, Imaging CoE and Harvard researchers have discovered the molecular cause of this irritation. The finding brings us a step closer to designing agents to block this mechanism and sheds light on other serious skin conditions, such as psoriasis.
Max Cryle wears a few hats: he is an AI on the Imaging CoE, an EMBL group leader and a researcher in the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute. He wore all his hats at once …
An international team of more than 20 scientists led by Imaging CoE scientists has inadvertently discovered how to create a new type of crystal using light ten billion times brighter than the sun.
