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…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
