Our group combines elements of optics, nanofabrication, synchrotron science and X-ray Free Electron Lasers, to develop new approaches to imaging materials and structures at the atomic, molecular and cellular level.
Our group characterises the macromolecular complexes in the nucleus to understand their roles in gene regulation and DNA damage repair pathway.
Our group explores the complex mechanisms behind cellular and sub-cellular events and processes. We also seek to develop novel bio-imaging modalities and instrumentation for new diagnostic and therapeutic tools.
Our group examines how viruses hijack cellular defence systems to ensure their own proliferation and survival.
Our group studies protein-based metallo-regulatory systems – from the metal transporters embedded in the cell membranes to the metalloproteins and enzymes which utilize transition metals for activity.
van Riessen - Experimental condensed matter and materials physics, and coherent X-ray imaging development
Our group develops novel methods of probing condensed matter and material properties using coherent X-ray imaging methods, electron spectroscopy, and nanofabricated devices.
