Research Headlines - Dyeing proteins to peer deeper inside living cells

[Source: Research & Innovation] Super-resolution microscopy that allows researchers to see inside nerve cells, track disease-causing proteins and watch cell division in living organisms earned three scientists the Nobel Prize for chemistry in 2014. Building on that breakthrough, a Marie Curie post-doctoral fellow has developed a pioneering technique to peer even more closely inside living cells at the nano-scale, using fluorescent dyes to label the tiny amino acids that are the building blocks of all proteins.
