JASN journal cover May 2019

The cover picture of the May 2019 issue of the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology highlights the work of J. Herwig et al. from the group of C. Meyer-Schwesinger (Institute of Cellular and Integrative Physiology, UKE). Congratulations to all the authors! In collaboration with A.V. Failla from our facility, a range of microscopes and techniques were successfully applied, such as STED super-resolution. Please find more information in our publication section.

Recently, one of UMIF research small report about the potential utilization of Spinning Disk-TIRF in cell biology have been reported in between the most 20 downloaded paper of journal of microscopy last year.

Thank you to all of you that have been downloading and reading this paper, and we warmly invite all the others to have a look to our works about Spinning Disk-TIRF microscopy:
