Quantitative Imaging of the Cell

Initial objectives

Develop novel imaging and bioengineering methods to quantify protein organization and dynamics with high spatial and temporal resolution. To reach these goals, we have developed and combined single-molecule based nanoscopy, dedicated image analysis methods and bioengineering techniques. The team works in close collaboration with biologist research groups, the Bordeaux Imaging Center and few industrial partners.

Highlights of the team organization

The Quantitative imaging of the cell team is a R&D team composed of people coming from various disciplines: microscopy, computer science and bioengineering. The team is headed by JB. Sibarita, physicist, who has joined the Institute in 2009 after 12 years spent at the Institut Curie (Paris). V. Studer, physico-chemist from the ESPCI (Paris), joined the group a few months later. F. Levet, computer scientist, and R. Galland, physicist expert in optics, joined the team as permanent researchers in 2009 and 2014 respectively.

Since 2010, the group has produced > 30 peer-review publications, 7 patents and 2 industrial technology transfers.
