Core Science Resources - methods development and innovation

I have recently joined QIB Core Sciences Resources and work alongside Kathryn Cross in Microscopy. I previously worked as a cell biologist where my key areas of microscopy expertise were light and fluorescent microscopy however, following extensive training at QIB, I am now also able to perform electron microscopy techniques. My role involves discussing imaging requirements with QIB scientists, helping with experimental design, sample preparation and Bioimaging at the John Innes Centre where electron microscopy imaging takes place. My role also involves training other scientists to use the light and fluorescent microscopes that we have available here at QIB.
