IMmune imaging

Use immune pathology to visualize immune cells within your tissue of interest using chip cytometry, multi-spectral imaging or microscopy.

At the molecular level, use structural biology to interrogate the physical features of immune receptors, viruses and more.

Core expertise

Chip cytometry

At the Peter Medawar Building for Pathogen Research, Chris Willberg has developed a platform of immune staining protocols to allow multi-colour visualisation within tissue samples or cell suspensions. 

Please contact Kate Powell for more information



Additional expertise

Multi-spectral imaging

At the CRUK Oxford Centre, up to six biomarkers can be visualised simultaneously in fixed tissue sections allowing unravelling of tissue composition and complexity.

Please contact Michael Youdell for more information





Electron microscopy (EM)

Micron Oxford aims to develop and apply new and emerging advanced microscopy technologies to facilitate important discoveries in basic biomedical research. To achieve this, Micron coordinates and manages the interdepartmental and interdisciplinary cooperation required to lower the activation energy for biologists to become early adopters of advanced imaging methods.

Live-cell super-resolution microscopy

Marco Fritzsche profile imageThe Biophysical Immunology Laboratory led by Marco Fritzsche aims to uncover the biophysical mechanisms underlying the human immune response. To study these often nanoscale processes on the correct spatiotemporal scales, research focuses on the development and application of live-cell super-resolution microscopy such as TIRF-SIM (total internal reflection fluorescence structured illumination microscopy) technology, which Marco recently established within the framework for an international collaboration between Professor Dong Li, Professor Eric Betzig and the University of Oxford's Micron, Professor Michael Dustin at the KIR and the WIMM.
