Often when we are giving talks we don’t have to say much, the images told it all.


The main research interests of the Eggeling Lab are focused on the application and development of ultra-sensitive, live-cell fluorescence microscopy techniques.

“These include super-resolution microscopy or nanoscopy, with a spatial resolution down to the molecular level, and superior to conventional optical microscopes. These advanced microscopes are used to unravel nanoscopic changes at the molecular level in living cells, allowing us to follow cellular immune responses or virus-host interactions. We can visualize previously undetectable molecular interactions (such as protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions), which will shed new light on different molecular pathways triggered at the cell surface and intracellularly, for example during antigen presentation by dendritic cells and T cell activation.”
