Nano-associated research groups

There are around a dozen core Nano-associated research groups based across several Oxford departments. These groups interact closely with the Micron staff and help guide decisions about facilities and research.

Ilan Davis

Ilan Davis Ilan Davis works on the mechanism of mRNA transport and localized translation in Drosophila oocytes and neuromuscular junctions.

Christian Eggeling

Christian Eggeling Christian Eggeling works on the application and development of ultra-sensitive, live-cell super-resolution fluorescence microscopy techniques.

Martin Booth

Martin Booth Martin Booth's research centres on the development of adaptive optics, with an emphasis on applications in optical microscopy.

Veronica Buckle

Veronica Buckle Veronica Buckle studies the relevance of nuclear organisation to gene expression during erythropoiesis.

Doug Higgs

Doug Higgs Doug Higgs works on how mammalian genes are switched on and off during differentiation and development.

Vincenzo Cerundolo

Vincenzo Cerundolo Vicenzo Cerundolo studies the mechanisms that control the cell-cell interplay required for optimal expansion and activation of tumour-specific T cell populations.

Jordan Raff

Jordan Raff The main goal of Jordan Raff's research is to understand how centrioles and centrosomes function at the molecular level.

Achillefs Kapanidis

Achillefs Kapanidis Achillefs Kapanidis studies mechanisms and machines of gene expression using single-molecule biophysical methods and biochemistry, and develops single-molecule fluorescence methods, assays and DNA-based biosensors

Dave Sherratt

Dave Sherratt Dave Sherratt's research is aimed at understanding how DNA replication, recombination and chromosome segregation shape bacterial chromosome organization in the context of the living cell.

Lothar Schermelleh

Lothar Lothar is the Micron Group Leader (with particular interest in super-resolution microscopy)

Yvonne Jones

Yvonne Jones Yvonne Jones studies the structural biology of cell surface recognition and signalling complexes.

Kay Grünewald

Kay Grünewald Kay Grünewald applies electron cryo tomography (cryo-ET) in combination with other techniques to analyze the the interaction between viral protein complexes and cellular structures in the course of the infection.

David Stuart

David Stuart David Stuart studies virus-receptor interactions and basic puzzles of virus assembly. .

Shankar Srinivas

Shankar Srinivas Shankar Srinivas studies cell Movement and fate during mammalian embryogenesis.

Harry Anderson
