Ground-Breaking Ceremony for New Research Building

On May 6th ground-breaking ceremony took place for the new research builidng of the Interdsciplinary Centre for Nanostructured Surfaces. Representatives from the Friedrich-Alexander University, the City of Erlangen, the State of Bavaria and the Ministry of Science and Education from the German Goverment made their way to celebrate. With a bright blue sky and a warm summer like breeze the representatives and honorary guests were all smiles. The combined effort of 40 million Euro we lead to a unique assembly of different approache on nano structures and their develepoment. OICE will be the major permanent user of this new building covering approximately one quarter of the floor space. More information in german are accessible here. We are absolutly delighted and are looking forward to the second half of 2018 when we hopefully will be moving into our then new home.

New Cell Line for RESOLFT Super Resolution Imaging Arrived

We are happy to announce that OICE can offer to make use of a phantastic cell line for your Resolft super-resolution imaging that is stable transformed with Vimentin-rsEGFP2. This is a generous gift by Prof. Stefan Jakobs from the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Goettingen. If you are interested in using it at OICE, please contact a member of staff.
