I am an Associated Researcher at the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology of Rosario in Argentina (IBR-CONICET) and an Assistant Professor in the Parasitology Department of the School of Biochemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences (FCByF) of the National University of Rosario. My line of work focus on studying the role of tubulin postraslational modifications in the dynamics of the cytoskeleton in the flagellate protozoan parasiteTrypanosoma cruzi, the causative agent of Chagas disease, which is an endemic disease in Latin America.

Advances in Expansion Microscopy

Posted by , on 4 August 2023

Expansion microscopy was introduced in 2015 by Boyden and his team, revolutionizing the way we see biological samples under a microscope1. Taking advantage of the power of physical enlargement, ExM pushes spatial resolution beyond the diffraction limit, allowing us to observe intricate details at previously unimaginable levels. The underlying principle of ExM lies in a
