High resolution cellular and molecular imaging system

Grant number: LE0668266

Abstract

Understanding where molecules are within cells, and how they interact with each other, is fundamental to significant advances being made in biology. Our research will use advanced imaging techniques to localize proteins within a variety of cells including neurons and germ cells. We will be able to determine how the different molecules within a single cell interact with each other. This information is relevant to many biological mechanisms and to many human diseases. Furthermore, our research will help maintain Australia's strong international reputation in the fields of neuroscience, protein trafficking and stem cells.
