Our student, Consuelo Ripoll, brilliantly passed her PhD examination. The PhD Thesis entitled "Metabolic nanosensors for the identification of tumoral metabo-phenotypes" was supervised by Drs Maria J. Ruedas-Rama, Miguel Martin, and Angel Orte. Consuelo was awarded the highest rank, and received … Leer más acerca de Congratulations to Dr Consuelo Ripoll!!!
In previous works, we used the fluorescent dye 2-Me-4-OMe-TM as intracellular phosphate sensing through fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM). However, a lower sensitivity than expected was observed. The use of fluorescent dyes needs the understanding of their photophysical properties … Leer más acerca de Unraveling a silicon-substituted xanthene
