Episode 35: Dr. Ricardo Henriques

Dr. Ricardo Henriques @HenriquesLab is a Group Leader at Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC, Portugal), as well as Honorary Professor at University College London (UCL, UK) and Francis Crick Institute.

Ricardo has a range of interests and experience in the field of imaging, tune in to this episode of Science Off Camera to hear about super resolution algorithms like SRRF, science and imaging in Portugal, and the importance of tinkering with equipment!

I have the feeling that now we are seeing a boom of tinkering again, there are sufficient novel methods coming out at a fast pace that you have custom devices appearing in streamlined cell biology research labs, and that’s cool!


Taken from the Henriques Lab page: We like to think of ourselves as optical biologists. We focus on addressing biomedical questions by exploiting advancements we develop in optical microscopy. To do so, we create open technology that pushes the boundaries of cellular imaging. All our research and methods are transparent, reproducible and widely available to researchers. In biology, we tackle broad virology, host-pathogen interactions, immunology and cell signalling questions. We do so by establishing new classes of fluorescent probes, high-speed cell-friendly super-resolution methods and computational modelling approaches that, although designed to answer questions of interest in the lab, have extensive cross-disciplinary applications.
