Lund 2018

The conference Super Resolution Techniques was held in the city of Lund in the spring of 2018. A very nice trip with nice weather and interesting science.

Cobolt visit

What would we be without our lasers, Emelie at Cobolt lasers shows us the manufacturing facilities.

FOM 2017

Testa Lab represented at the Focus on Microscopy conference 2017 in Bordeaux

Crayfish party

August is the season of crayfish parties in Sweden. Of course Testa Lab wasn't late to follow tradition!


On a beautiful summer day we went kayaking in Brunnsviken with some of our neighbouring groups.

About SciLifeLab

Our lab is located in the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab), a national center for molecular biosciences with focus on health and environmental research. SciLifeLab has been created by the coordinated effort of four universities in Stockholm and Uppsala: Stockholm University, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Uppsala University.

Open Positions

We are looking for self-motivated and curiosity-driven candidates with an expertise in physics, chemistry or biology, who are looking to make original contributions to the field of super-resolution microscopy. The candidates will work on collaborative projects investigating the nanoscale organization and dynamics of proteins in living neurons and brain tissue with our cutting edge microscopy technology. We offer an outstanding scientific environment and a vibrant working climate with individual freedom and various possibilities for professional development. The work will be funded by the European Union within the ERC project “MoNaLISA”.
