How is a cell organized? How are organelles and especially mitochondria organized on the nanoscale? The investigation of the nanoscale architecture and dynamics of mitochondria in health and diseases requires super-resolution light microscopy (nanoscopy). We are using various super-resolution techniques to address these questions. We also design, develop and investigate novel fluorescent probes, most notably reversibly switchable fluorescent proteins (RSFPs) that make live-cell nanoscopy possible.
