Holographic optical trapping Raman micro-spectroscopy for non-invasive measurement and manipulation of live cells (2018)
Journal Article
Sinjab, F., Awuah, D., Gibson, G., Padgett, M., Ghaemmaghami, A. M., & Notingher, I. (in press). Holographic optical trapping Raman micro-spectroscopy for non-invasive measurement and manipulation of live cells. Optics Express, ISSN 1094-4087

We present a new approach for combining holographic optical tweezers with confocal Raman spectroscopy. Multiple laser foci, generated using a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator, are individually used for both optical trapping and excitation of sp... Read More

The role of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase-aryl hydrocarbon receptor pathway in the TLR4-induced tolerogenic phenotype in human DCs (2017)
Journal Article
Salazar, F., Awuah, D., Negm, O. H., Shakib, F., & Ghaemmaghami, A. M. (2017). The role of indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase-aryl hydrocarbon receptor pathway in the TLR4-induced tolerogenic phenotype in human DCs. Scientific Reports, 7, doi:10.1038/srep43337. ISSN 2045-2322

A controlled inflammatory response is required for protection against infection, but persistent inflammation causes tissue damage. Dendritic cells (DCs) have a unique capacity to promote both inflammatory and anti-inflammatory processes. One key mech... Read More
