Many thanks to the British Biophysical Society for awarding me with a travel grant to present my research at 21st International Workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy in the Life Sciences” at the beginning of September in Berlin. I am in my final year of DPhil studies in Biophysics in Achillefs Kapanidis group (University of Oxford) and I was presenting my work on the “mobility and spatial distribution of tRNA in live bacteria using single-molecule tracking”. During the Picoquant workshop I most enjoyed the discussions and helpful comments on my work especially with the more experienced researchers. I was also jointly awarded the prize for the best student talk during the workshop – many thanks go to the scientific panel and the Picoquant GmbH!
