Mechanics of blastocyst


Mammalian embryos develop over many days while relying on short-lived cellular processes to change shape.
Therefore, understanding how cells sculpt the mammalian embryo during its development requires imaging shape changes across time scales. We use microscopy, genetics and biophysics tools to understand the forces controlling the early development of mammals, including humans.

Ralph Jungmann


From DNA Nanotechnology to biomedical insight: Towards single-molecule spatial omics


The talk shows how DNA-barcoding and RESI enhance
fluorescence microscopy to
Ångström-scale resolution with standard equipment.
The technique achieves single-protein resolution in cells and maps CD20 in immunotherapy research, bridging super-resolution microscopy and structural biology.

Wiebke Möbius


Localization techniques in biomedical electron microscopy:
good as gold


You want to find out where your protein of interest is localized in the tissue or cell?
You also need information about the ultrastructure of the environment of this protein? Then you should attend this introduction into localization techniques in biomedical electron microscopy with examples from real life lab experiences!

Viral replication organelles revisited by cryo-electron microscopy


Explore the microscopic world of infected cells, where RNA viruses like coronaviruses build up their own replication fortresses. Discover how cutting-edge cryo-EM technology is unveiling macromolecular secrets of these viral replication organelles, opening venues to disrupt viral replication and disease.
