Integrated facility for confocal imaging and single molecule flourescence analysis

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Infrastructure Equipment & Facilities (LIEF)

Abstract


  • This proposal aims to (i) replace a seriously aging confocal microscope urgently required by a large grouping of researchers to perform essential imaging of biological specimens, and (ii) provide these researchers for the first time with the capability to perform single molecule analysis (used to directly measure interactions between individual molecules). The projects to be supported by this new facility span a huge range of important areas from the biological impacts of climate change to molecular processes underpinning serious human diseases. Consequently, the outcomes, which will only be possible with access to this new equipment, are expected to provide many important advances in knowledge across all these fields
