§Episode 13 Hanae Sato, Associate Professor
§Episode 7 Toshio Ando, Professor
Professor Toshio Ando, Distinguished Professor of Kanazawa University, has published “High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy in Biology” with Springer Nature Publishing. It is the first ‘textbook’ of HS-AFM, providing a comprehensive description of the principles and techniques of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy (HS-AFM).
Numerous examples of HS-AFM studies on proteins in this book demonstrate how to apply this new form of microscopy to specific biological problems. And the instrumentation techniques detailed in Chapter 4 will be helpful for engineers and scientists who want to develop the next generation of high-speed scanning probe microscopes for biology. These are of great value to a wide range of people, from students and researchers new to HS-AFM to engineers and researchers planning the development of the next generation of Bio-SPM.
In this episode, the author, Prof. Ando, describes the background to the publication of the book and shares his thoughts on the future of HS-AFM.
§Episode 6 Carsten Beta, Professor
Professor Carsten Beta is an overseas-based principal investigator at the NanoLSI WPI Kanazawa University and faculty at the Universität Potsdam Institute of Physics and Astronomy, University of Potsdam, Germany.
Here, he describes his research on biological physics on the scale of individual cells based on microscopic observations and manipulation and modelling using pattern formation in nonlinear systems.
§Episode 5 Shigehisa Akine and Mark J. MacLachlan
In this episode of the NanoLSI Podcast, they describe recent developments in their research on nanomolecular cages for biomolecular sensing and biocompatible AFM tips for chemically probing living cells, respectively.
§Episode 4 Alexander Mikhailov, Professor
§Episode 3 Yuri Korchev, Professor
§Episode 2 Adam Foster, Professor
§Episode 1 Mark MacLachlan, Professor
