Advancing live cell microscopy with microfluidics-based development of new fluorescent probes

Fluorescence imaging is widely used for resolving molecular events in cells, tissues and whole organisms. The development of genetically-encoded fluorophores and a detailed understanding of their photophysics is critical for quantitative bioimaging and is central to the advancement of super-resolution optical microscopy. I will describe our efforts to quantify and improve the photophysical properties of red fluorescent proteins and genetically-encoded FRET sensors using microfluidic cell-sorting systems.


Host: Associate professor Frans Mulder, iNANO & Dept. of Chemistry, AU
