Director of Electron Microscopy
Jeremy Skepper heads a state of the art biological TEM and SEM resources in CAIC. With enormous experience in sample preparation, imaging and image interpretation, Jeremy and his team have collaborators traveling from across the UK to take advantage of their expertise at the Multi-Imaging Centre, and now CAIC. Jeremy oversaw the smooth transformation of the former Multi-Imaging Centre into the new Cambridge Advanced Imaging Centre.
Director of Light Microscopy
Kevin O'Holleran heads the development of the light microscopes at CAIC. Kevin joined the centre from the National Physical Laboratory where he used his expertise as an optical physicist and mathematical modeler to design and build super resolution microscopes. Primarily he and his team will focus on the development of fluorescence light sheet microscopes and analysis of the vast quantities of data produced. Kevin also oversees a number of collaborations which will see STED and 3D localisation super resolution microscopes developed for the centre.
Scientific Software Engineer
Leila Mureșan joined CAIC from the Centre de Génétique Moléculaire in Gif-sur-Yvette. As a Scientific Software Engineer her expertise in image processing and data analysis will be crucial in building the infrastructure and algorithms required to fully exploit the capabilities of our light sheet microscopes.
Imaging Research Associate
Martin O. Lenz joined the centre from Institute of Neuroscience in Bordeaux, where he developed and applied various super-resolution microscopy techniques. He worked in several postdoctoral and engineering positions (University of Chicago, Imperial College London, IINS Bordeaux) developing and applying various leading edge microscopy technologies. His expertise in optical physics as well as the experience working in interdisciplinary teams will help to fulfil the centres mission.
CAIC's first PhD student is Ruth Sims who is building a light sheet microscope with high throughput capabilities for cancer research applications. Ruth is affiliated with the centre for doctoral training in Photonic Systems Development and gained her bachelors degree in Mathematics and Physics from Durham University.
