Peter Laskey

Pete Laskey studied Biological and Medicinal Chemistry, he then competed a masters in Pharmacology and a PhD in Virology. During his PhD he studied the interaction between the human papilloma virus E1^E4 protein and cell cytoskeleton specializing in live cell imaging. He went on to work as an imaging specialist at the National Institute of Medical Research before leaving to spend several years traveling the world. On returning to Europe he spent several years at Andor focusing on sCMOS camera technology before joining Leica as the Product Manager for the GSD 3D super resolution system in 2013.
