Intermediate filaments (IFs) play an important role in regulating cellular processes. In general, they are essential to maintaining cell integrity and providing mechanical support for the plasma membrane, among other things. A number of diseases are associated with malfunctioning IFs in cells, including certain types of cancer. Leila Nahidiazar’s research focuses on determining the structure and organisation of IFs using a technique called Single Molecule Localization Microscopy.
