Insights into the inner life of living cells: Exploring cellular biophysics by single-molecule methods

The group focuses on the application of techniques from the emerging field of super-resolution microscopy to study cell biology. By combining physical concepts of imaging, photo-manipulation of fluorophores and quantitative read-out analyses, we aim at a single-molecule description of cellular structures and processes.
