Researcher at Institute of Microbiology of the CAS, Prague, Czech Republic
Tomáš investigates translation control during stress conditions and factors involved in the regulation.
What do you find the most fascinating about your research?
The possibility to elucidate yet undiscovered in such a basic process as is protein synthesis.
What do you see as a problem in live-cell research?
To ensure proper conditions for cells to survive (phototoxicity, temperature, CO2) and image acquisition speed (fast enough).
Could you describe your experience using Q-Phase?
The biggest advantages of using Q-PHASE include relatively robust data recruitment, automation of the acquisition process, combination of fluorescence and QPI, and high resolution.
Selected publications realized with Q-Phase
Quantitative Phase Imaging of Spreading Fibroblasts Identifies the Role of Focal Adhesion Kinase in the Stabilization of the Cell Rear
