Research interests

A/Prof. F. Braet is Deputy Director of the Australian Centre for Microscopy & Microanalysis which is at The University of Sydney. His direct research interests cover the areas of structural biology, cancer biology, vascular biology, chemical biology and nanobiotechnology. He has 18 years experience as a research cell biologist and histologist, specialising in the application and development of correlative microscopy methods and associated biomolecular labelling techniques to unravel structure-function relationships of cellular-, bio-, and nanomaterials that cannot be addressed through standard microscopy approaches. Through the use of these innovative approaches to bio-imaging, A/Prof. Braet has contributed significantly to the understanding of colorectal cancer and liver transendothelial transport.
