Prof Ricardo Henriques profile picture
  • Honorary Professor
  • Lab for Molecular Cell Bio MRC-UCL
  • Faculty of Life Sciences
Dr. Ricardo Henriques is a group leader since 2013 at both the University College London and The Francis Crick Institute in the UK. His group undergoes research in optical and computational biophysics, with a special interest in super-resolution microscopy and host-pathogen interactions. He graduated in Physics, specialising in biophotonics and robotics. He finished his PhD In 2011 on the topic of advancing super-resolution microscopy technologies (Musa Mhlanga lab). He then pursued postdoc research at Institut Pasteur Paris, studying HIV-1 T-cell infection through nanoscale imaging (Christophe Zimmer lab).

Research Summary
The Henriques laboratory was established in 2013 to undertake research combining cell biology, optical physics and biochemistry. The group focuses on biological problems that cannot be addressed with current imaging technology, and thus aims to develop analytical, optical and biochemical approaches to address these questions. In cell biology we aim to understand how viruses enter cells, probing and remodelling membranes, and what are the structural changes viruses undergo during cell-entry, uncoating and morphogenesis. To do so, we are developing new classes of fluorescent probes, high-speed cell friendly Super-Resolution methods and computational modelling approaches that, although designed to answer questions of interest in the lab, will have broad applications in cell biology research.
