PhD project: Nanoplatform development for selective removal of antibiotic-resistant bacteria from hospital water - Wetsus, Netherlands

Since their introduction in 1920 antibiotics have made it possible to prevent and cure

infections in humans (and animals). As a result, our quality of life has improved enormously.

Unfortunately (mis)use of antibiotics has created a major challenge which threatens human

health, namely antibiotics resistant bacteria. Clearly, not being able to treat bacterial

infections can result in prolonged illness, a greater risk for complications, increased

morbidity, and higher…

PhD Student - Physics: High temporal and spatial resolution microscopy - Nanoscopy, Nanophysics, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, Genoa, Italy

Due to its compatibility with living systems, its single-molecule sensitivity and its specificity, fluorescence microscopy has been the workhorse for dynamic studies of structure and function at the cellular and sub-cellular levels for almost a century. However, many challenging questions of molecular and cellular biology remain beyond its conventional capabilities. The temporal and spatial resolution of conventional fluorescence microscopy pose fundamental limits for investigating the…
