Democratising live-cell super-resolution microscopy enabled by open technology

Transmissão através de Videoconferência

Por Ricardo Henriques (Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência).

Super-resolution microscopy has become essential for the study of nanoscale biological processes. This type of imaging often requires specialised methods to collect and process a large volume of recorded data and extract quantitative information. In recent years, our team and collaborators have built an open-source ecosystem of computational, biochemical and optical approaches for live-cell super-resolution microscopy, designed to combine high performance and ease of use. This seminar will present some of these approaches such as SRRF, SQUIRREL, VirusMapper, Super-Beacons, ZeroCostDL4Mic and vLume, showcasing their application in the study of biological processes such as viral infection.

Short Bio: Ricardo Henriques graduated from Physics Engineering at FCUL in 2006. He carried out PhD research in optical physics and biophysics at IMM (2008, Portugal), CSIR (South Africa) and Institute Pasteur (France). He did a short postdoc in Institute Pasteur (2011, France), started a research group at UCL (2013, UK), and then a second laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute (2017, UK). Became full professor at UCL  (2018) and recently started moving his laboratory to IGC (2020, Portugal) where he applies optical physics, machine-learning and cell biology to study viral infection.
