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 the PhD degree with "International Merits". She delivered an excellent … [Leer más...] acerca deCongratulations 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 for a correct interpretation of their signal. Because cytoplasm is a complex … [Leer más...] acerca deUnraveling a silicon-substituted xanthene
Drs Emilio Garcia-Fernandez and Jose M. Paredes have delivered an exciting outreach seminar at the Faculty of Pharmacy on the uses and applications of luminescence techniques. The audience has very much enjoyed the excellent talks and hands-on experiments. We thank the Faculty of Pharmacy for the organization of this series of outreach seminars. … [Leer más...] acerca deOutreach seminar

In a fruitful collaboration with Prof. Peter Friedman, from Pittsburgh University, we have provided insights into the mechanisms of NHERF1 phosphorylation promoted by parathyroid hormone, regulating NPT2A-dependent phosphate transport. We have elegantly used our FLIM-sensor to follow transient phosphate kinetics within live cells upon the interaction with PTH hormone. We … [Leer más...] acerca deInsights into NPT2A-dependent phosphate transport
