Student Making Strides in Her Research Thanks to Shared Facilities Agreement Richard Gordon
Ye Sun, a graduate student in the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI) Integrative Biology and Neuroscience (IBAN) program is currently working on her ambitious Ph.D. project. Her research is integrating 2-photon microscopy and electron microscopy by using 2-photon microscopy to induce the formation of new spines in living neurons. The challenge of her project is the small size of each spine. Fortunately, MPFI’s Electron Microscopy Core acquired the Automatic Tape-Collecting Ultramicrotome (ATUMtome) in 2015. Continuous access to this newly developed tool has been very helpful to Sun’s project. Other FAU students have access to this Electron Microscopy Core thanks to the shared facilities agreement between FAU, Max Planck Florida and Scripps Institutes. Read More.
