Functieomschrijving

We are searching for a young scientist who is interested to use super-resolution microscopy to map cell-surface receptors at the nanoscale. The function is part of the ERC project NANOSTORM of Dr. Lorenzo Albertazzi. The objective is to use advanced methods such as STORM and PAINT super-resolution microscopy acquire new knowledge about receptor number and distribution to guide the design of targeted drug delivery carriers. The project will benefit of international collaborations with groups active in the field of imaging, targeted therapies and clinical oncology.
