Super-resolution microscopy and molecular signalling

Novel microscopy technologies, that were awarded a Nobel Prize in 2014, have created new possibilities for imaging signalling events at single molecule resolution within intact cells.

In this project, we use these technologies to study how T cells are activated by the presentation of antigens from infectious agents or tumours.

We also study the molecular interactions of the tumour suppressor protein, Scribble, using single molecule imaging to determine how it coordinates cell polarity and cell signalling.
