MITACS GLOBALLINK fellowship for work on polarisation effects in confocal evanescent (TIR-SAF) super-resolution microscopies applied to cell adhesion
We congratulate Kaitlin Szederkenyi, a master student in Applied Science and Biomedical Engineering from the University of Toronto to her MITACS fellowship. Kaitlin will join team 1 of the SPPIN for a 4-month internship. She will be working with Martin Oheim and Bruno Lagarde (core unit) on polarisation effects in a scanning-type TIR-SAF axial super-resolution microscopy. Kaitlin will apply this technique to study near-membrane intracellular interactions of cell adhesion molecules on membrane topography.
