We are happy to announce that Magdalena Schneider, PhD student in Sub-project Superresolution Microscopy, defended successfully her PhD thesis on 20th of October, 2021.
Magdalena was a PhD student under the supervision of Gerhard Schütz, principal investigator of Sub-project Superresolution Microscopy, at the Institute of Applied Physics at the TU Wien. Her thesis title is “Statistical analysis of biomolecular clustering and oligomerization” and can be found here.
Currently, she is working as a postdoctoral researcher in the SFB.
The online Workshop at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) has just started. This is a two-weeks event with more than 50 international researchers participating.
In the first week (March, 15th – 18th), we have mainly talks from applied mathematicians presenting results on tomographic reconstructions while the second week (March, 23th – 25th) covers the practical applications of such methods in astronomy and medical imaging. See the full program here.
Registration is free. You just have to contact Peter Elbau.
We are happy to announce that Magdalena Schneider and Gerhard Schütz, members of the SFB, have contributed to a recent publication in Nature Communications. The paper entitled “Unscrambling fluorophore blinking for comprehensive cluster detection via photoactivated localization microscopy” provides a methodology for determining and optimizing the blinking behaviour of any PALM-compatible fluorophore.
The 5th Internal Meeting and the 4th Member Workshop took place online on September 1st and 2nd, respectively. After the cancellation of the previous meetings due to Covid-19, we managed to meet after a long time (at least online).
In the internal meeting, we had the opportunity to listen to interesting talks from external members of the SFB and participate in special sessions of the collaborating sub-projects. The member workshop consisted of member talks and talks from associated members with potential application to the scope of the SFB. The members elect Simon Hubmer and Ekaterina Sherina as the new member speaker and vice-speaker, respectively.
Hopefully we can meet in person again in Bad Mitterndorf at the end of November.
Leopold Veselka is the PhD student at the Computational Science Center under the supervision of P. Elbau, working in the Subproject: Quantitative Coupled Physics Imaging.
Simon Hubmer is the postdoctoral researcher in the Subproject: Tomography in Astronomy of R. Ramlau
Mia Kvåle Løvmo joins the team of M. Ritsch-Marte, as a PhD student, working in Subproject: Imaging of Trapped Particles at the Division for Biomedical Physics.
Denise Schmutz started her PhD studies at the Computational Science Center, working in O. Scherzer’s Subproject: Tomography with Uncertainties.
Montse López (PostDoc) and Magdalena Schneider (PhD student) joined G. Schütz’s group, participating in Subproject: Ultra-high Resolution Microscopy, located at the Institute of Applied Physics – Biophysics.
