Polarbio: Polarimetric orthogonally breaking imaging
applied to the study of the dynamics of intracellular architecture
Research Laboratories: IGDR – R&D Microscopy team /Optics and Photonics dpt. (FOTON Institute)
Heads of the Scientific Project: Marc Tramier / Mehdi Alouini
Polarbio is a multidisciplinary project joining the expertise of the Optics and Photonics department at Rennes 1 University (https://ipr.univ-rennes1.fr/d4?lang=en) headed by Mehdi Alouini and the group of Marc Tramier at the Institute of Genetics and Development of Rennes (https://igdr.univ-rennes1.fr/en/research/research-groups/marc-tramier-group). The Optics and Photonics Department has developed a new polarimetric sensitivity imaging modality based on the original “orthogonality breaking” concept (DSOB: Depolarization / Dichroism Sensing by Orthogonality Breaking) . In collaboration with the IGDR team, the context of the project will be to give access of this method in microscopy applied to biology through state-of-the-art microscopy core facilities (Microscopy Rennes Imaging Center, MRic, http://microscopie.univ-rennes1.fr/index.html).
Application deadline: 15 September 2017
