About Thi Ngoc Nhu Phan

My research focuses on the development and application of mass spectrometry imaging (ToF-SIMS, NanoSIMS, MALDI), super resolution stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy, and correlative imaging using combinations of these modalities to understand the structural and functional relationship of biomolecules in neuronal cells and in the brain. I am particularly interested in the molecular mechanisms underlying the differentiation and proliferation of neuronal stem cells, stress granule pathways and the links to neurodegeneration.

Another topic of my research is the development of novel labeling probes for correlative imaging. The probes enable imaging specific target molecules at micro and nanoscale resolution using the combination of SIMS, fluorescence microscopy, and electron microscopy.
