About Suliana Manley

Suliana Manley is an assistant professor of physics at the EPFL where she directs the EPFL’s Laboratory of Experimental Biophysics. Her research focuses on automated and high-throughput super-resolution fluorescence microscopy (PALM/STORM), high-density single molecule particle tracking (sptPALM), and its application to the structure and dynamics underlying the biophysics of cells and organelles. She has won the 2019 RMS Medal for Light Microscopy “for outstanding scientific achievements applying or developing new forms of light microscopy ” and received in December 2018 an ERC Consolidator Grant Award.

She is a member of the NCCR steering committee.
