Royal Society Fellowship for Robert Pal

(15 May 2014)

Many congratulations to Dr. Robert Pal for a prestigious University Research Fellowship from the Royal Society to study the Development and Chemical Application of Phase Modulation Nanoscopy. Robert will hold his Fellowship in the Chemistry Department, from the 1st October this year. After completing his PhD in 2008, he has been working as a postdoctoral research assistant in the Department and has transformed himself from an organic chemist to a well recognised microscopist. He also serves as the Technical Director of the successful University spin out company, FScan Ltd. 


Robert's research interests are focused around the development of novel optical and super-resolution microscopy instrumentation and associated time-resolved techniques. He also maintains an interest in lanthanide based sensors and imaging agents, including organelle specific probes.
