We are currently offering a masters research project for students of Experimental Physics, or for preference, Nanomaterials Science in our lab (Molecular Biophysics). The research concerns energy transfer and quenching effects observed in fiducial markers for CLEM* and fluorescent labels used in super-resolution microscopy. You will find the full project description and contact details after the break.
It is October, so scarcely a month after we have welcomed this year’s student into our master’s programmes, and it is already time to welcome visitors interested in becoming next year’s students. I hope to see you this afternoon at the Open Day in the Koningsberger Building on the Uithof!
This year’s Dutch Biophysics meeting in Veldhoven featured a talk by Job Fermie on 3D CLEM — a ‘best-of’ if you will of his thesis reasearch which he will defend in early summer 2019. Please excuse the bad image quality taken by a non-expert (Gerhard Blab) from the back of the room.
I am happy to report that the results of single-particle experiements on fluorescent fiducial markers by PhD candidate Jantina and bachelor student Tom have been published in the journal “Scientific Research“.
Bachelor Student, “Förster and Dexter Energy Transfer in Fluorescent Dyes.”

This week, several members of our group will attend the Focus On Microscopy Conference in Bordeaux, France. There, we will present a poster and give two talks:
- “Fluorescently Labeled Silica Coated Gold Nanoparticles as Fiducials for Correlative Microscopy“, (Jantina Fokkema, poster, P1-D/9, Monday)
- “Simultaneous STED-FLIM Imaging of Actin and EGFR” (Hans Gerritsen, talk, TU-AF1-PAR-B, Tuesday at 14:20)
- “Looking through a Mismatched Sample: When the Emission and Excitation PSF Are No Longer the Same” (Sergey Loginov, talk, WE-MO2-PAR-C, Wednesday at 12:00)
In addition, may I wholeheartly recommend a talk by one of our colleagues from the Soft Condensed Matter Group:
- “Single Sample Calibration and Alignment of Clsm and (3D) STED” (Ernest van der Wee, talk, WE-MO2-PAR-A, Wednesday at 12:20)
Looking for the best place to study physics?(*) Look no further — today, all the Exact (Bèta) Sciences will tell you why Utrecht is the place to come to when it comes to your science master studies! The master evening starts at 5pm in the Hijmans van den Berghgebouw on the Uithof (close to the UMC hospital).
