Welcome to CAi

The Centre for Advanced Imaging (CAi) is a joint venture of work groups from the Mathematics/Natural Sciences Faculty and the Medical Faculty of HHU. The aim of CAi is to encourage the development and use of applied optical microscopy  in the interdisciplinary environment of Life and Material Sciences. The CAi may also be used by external research groups according to prior agreement.

Picture of the month

Distribution of two proteins, of which interactions and localization behavior at the plasma membrane change upon addition of a chemical component. The proteins were fused with eGFP or mCherry, and were prepared for superresolution microscopy using nanobody-boosters. The images were acquired using confocal microscopy, as well as gSTED-microscopy, and were generated in the context of the Master-module M4457

(Scale bar 5 µm, acquired using TCS SP8 3x STED).

Upcoming events:

Symposium: Tracking Life! - From imaging single molecules to whole organisms

Being held at the RWTH Aachen, Oct. 8th 2018, which is co-organized by the Young Academy of Europe and "Die Junge Akademie" and is free of charge for all participants!
This interdisciplinary meeting brings together experts from imaging single molecules to whole organisms and has a great line-up of keynote speaker:
Fritjof Helmchen, Brain Research Institute, University of Zürich, Daniel Razansky, Helmholtz Zentrum München, Steven Lee, Cambridge University
*Currently, we are actively looking for student/junior researcher talks!* (deadline Aug 31th).
Please encourage your students to take part! This is a great opportunity to present their data for the first time at an interdisciplinary meeting and I really encourage them to actively attend the meeting. Additionally, there will be a poster session.
