Life Science Interface Laboratory


The overarching aim of the LSI laboratory is molecular imaging - the quantitative analysis of molecules in their native environment, i.e. inside living cells. To achieve maximum impact, we work at the interface with researchers from the physical sciences, such as physics, mathematics, engineering and chemistry. A clickable poster summarising our work is available here.
