Fluorescence lifetime imaging grant success

We have been successful in our bid for a seed-corn grant from the Bristol Centre for Agricultural Innovation to investigate the fluorescence lifetimes of iridescent chloroplasts using fluorescence lifetime imaging. This will help upgrade our current time-correlated single photon counting apparatus and enable confocal imaging of single chloroplasts. These studies will investigate if the non-photochemical quenching response of the iridoplasts is related to their photonic structure.
