Cristina Berciu, PhD, is the manager of the Microscopy Core Facility at McLean Hospital. She is broadly skilled, technically knowledgeable, and experienced hands-on electron microscopist, devising and conducting correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) experiments which bring together the advantages of these two imaging modes by allowing identification of areas of particular interest at the light microscope (using fluorescent proteins or vital dyes as markers) and then relocation of these areas to the electron microscope for further study at higher resolution.
Dr. Cristina Berciu is an expert in both classical and modern electron microscopy techniques, including electron microscopy sample preparation using high pressure freezing and freeze substitution, cryo-electron tomography of intact cells, and CLEM. She uses cutting-edge, challenging, and innovative 3D electron microscopy imaging techniques and image processing (serial sections TEM and electron tomography) to solve pressing biomedical questions.
