Linda Sandblad

The cytoskeletal protein macromolecules are involved in cell morphogenesis, organell and genome organisation, cell division, motion, growth and polarity control. Our research group use electron microscopy methods to study cytoskeleton structure, assembly and spatial organisation in cells and bacteria.

Linda Sandblad is director of UCEM (Umeå Centre of Electron Microscopy) more information about electron microscopy, instrument, methods, service, colleagues and access is available at the facility homepage:
