Dr. Timo Zimmermann is the head of the Advanced Light Microscopy Unit of the Center for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona since 2007. After studying Biology in Munich and a subsequent PhD Thesis in cellular and developmental biology using confocal microscopy, he worked for several years at the Advanced Light Microscopy Facility at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, before moving to Barcelona to establish the unit at the CRG.

  • Abstracts of the 6th European Super-Resolution User-Club Meeting

    The 6th European Super-Resolution User Club Meeting was held in collaboration with Dr. Timo Zimmermann, CRG, and Dr. Pablo Loza-Alvarez, ICFO, Barcelona. According to the founding principle of the club of keeping close to science, both imaging facilities at the CRG and the ICFO opened their doors to the User Club members, allowing them to explore exciting super-resolution and and nanoscopy applications. The meeting agenda covered highly relevant talks around this year’s central theme “Core Facilities and Super-Resolution Microscopy”, as well as plenty of opportunities to network amongst super-resolution users from different European countries. Here we present the abstracts of the talks held during the meeting.

  • Video Interview with Timo Zimmermann

    The first super-resolution image he saw was an eye opener for him: "It was not just structures that got smaller. I was looking at a sample that I specifically had high hopes of seeing another layer of complexity and this actually was there."

  • Webinar: New Dimensions in Super-Resolution Microscopy

    This webinar will highlight ground-breaking techniques in microscopy. Two scientists will present the impressive results they have achieved using confocal and widefield 3D super-resolution methods. Dr. Timo Zimmermann, Head of the Advanced Light Microscopy Unit, CRG – Centre for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona, Spain, will present biological applications for the next generation of STED microscopy systems. Dr. Eric Hosy from CNRS, University of Bordeaux, France, will talk about live cell localization microscopy with Leica SR GSD 3D.
