Silvio O. Rizzoli Universität Göttingen, Göttingen , Germany

Short CV
My laboratory has a dual focus – the development of high-end imaging and synaptic physiology. All of our projects make use of super-resolution imaging techniques, including stimulated emission depletion microscopy (STED) and ground state depletion microscopy followed by individual molecule return (GSDIM). We combine these techniques with conventional imaging, electron microscopy, quantitative biochemistry, and imaging mass spectrometry, including nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry (NanoSIMS).
