Chris Gell

Senior Imaging Technician, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences



I have recently joined the School of Life Sciences as a Senior Imaging Technician. My role will be to support microscopy users in various techniques available within the new School of Life Sciences Imaging and Microscopy (SLIM) facility, you can find me in room E100. I have a PhD in Biophysics (Leeds). During this time I worked on single-molecule protein folding using FRET and FCS. From 2003-2006, I managed a small research facility (focused on the use of FCS, FRET and TIRF microscopy), mainly working on protein folding and DNA-RNAP interactions. In 2006, I moved to Dresden, Germany to work at the MPI for Cell Biology and Genetics, where I studied kinesin-microtubule interactions.

Expertise Summary

TIRFM; FCS; confocal microscopy; wide-field fluorescence microscopy; fluorescence lifetime spectroscopy; fluorescence anisotropy; FRAP; fluorescence quenching; FRET; image analysis (ImageJ, MetaMorph, Igor Pro, Maple, Andor IQ); custom image analysis programming.
