NANO-scale VIsualization to understand Bacterial virulence and invasiveness - based on fluorescence NANOscopy and VIBrational microscopy

Project description

A super-resolution microscope for studying bacterial virulence

The EU-funded NanoVIB project is working on a super-resolution microscope for delineating the cellular origin of diseases. The novel microscope will offer higher resolution and increased penetration depths, providing the opportunity to resolve protein localisation patterns, placing them in a cellular context. NanoVIB researchers will employ this novel technology to study the molecular mechanisms underlying pneumococcal disease, focusing on the interaction of the pathogen with immune and host cells. This part of the project has the potential to assist in the design of treatments and vaccines against pneumococcal disease.
