Markus Sauer, from the University of Wuerzburg in Germany, aims to develop refined localization microscopy methods (dSTORM and PALM) capable of providing quantitative information on the distributions and densities of molecules with unmatched spatial resolution. For example, the localization of bacterial and synaptic proteins and their interacting partners are determined in cells and tissue slices. He has been invited by Timo Zimmermann (CRG).
