Investigation of cellular uptake mechanisms by dual TEM and superresolution fluorescence imaging
Two female chemists working on an electron microscope.

Correlative superresolution fluorescence and transmission electron microscopy will be used to study the uptake and release of polymeric drug delivery systems. In this project, special focus is placed on the complementary information that can be obtained by both of these high resolution microscopy techniques. In particular, the distribution as well as the changes in the ultrastructural environment will be investigated with high resolution down to the membrane level.
