Description

Our lab is interested in developing advanced methods in correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM). Our research goal is to simplify the current method procedure, to bring the imaging sensitivity and resolution to higher level, to increase the accuracy and re-productivity.

We are looking for a molecular biologist that has expertise in In situ Hybridization (ISH), Immunohistochemistry (ISH) and molecular cloning for this particular project. In this project, we are developing a novel sample processing procedure to enable pathology tissues for correlative images by special stains under light and scanning electron microscopy.
