Exchange visits

  • MSc student from the UCT node, Michael Reiche, received an NRF Travel Award which enabled him to spend three weeks in the USA learning new skills in the fields of microscopy and imaging. He attended the Special Topics Course on Optical Microscopy and Imaging in the Biomedical Sciences (OMIBS) at the Marine Biological Laboratories where he was exposed to theoretical understanding developed during lectures, discussions with faculty, and assignments. This included an in-depth understanding of fundamental aspects of physics as well as the associated cellular biology. Conversations with experts from around the world also proved useful in exposing him to new research ideas and ways of thinking. In addition to the theoretical knowledge, the course also included hands-on use of various imaging techniques on a variety of imaging platforms. The final component of the course comprised of sample preparation methods; image analysis using appropriate software; and the use of controls and correction methods necessary to correctly and accurately measure and quantify samples - 2015
  • Michael Reieche travelled to the US NIH in Bethesda, where he presented his research on visualizing the mycobacterial mutasome to members of two collaborating laboratories of the UCT node. Discussions with Dr Roger Woodgate (Laboratory of Genomic Integrity, NICHD) mainly concerned DNA damage in bacteria, repair pathways and methods of investigation, whereas discussion with Drs. Clif Barry III and Helena Boshoff (Tuberculosis Research Section, Laboratory of Clinical Infectious Diseases, NIAID) focused on holistic approaches to chemotherapeutic targeting of the mutasome.  The last stop on Michael’s trip was to the HHMI Janelia Research Campus where he met with Drs Teng-Leong Chew and Jesse Aaron at the Advanced Imaging Center to discuss a promising research avenue which formed the basis of a successful application by Digby Warner, Michael’s PhD supervisor, to utilise super-resolution imaging equipment at the AIC, under the HHMI Visiting Scientist Program - 2015
