Charlotte Pain

Post-Doctoral Research Assistant

Department of Biological and Medical Sciences


I am a post-doctoral research assistant working in the plant endomembrane group at Oxford Brookes University.


My research is focused on developing image analysis methods that enable quantification of the plant endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and identification of novel ER shaping proteins. Of particular interest is the Lunapark protein family which play a key role in maintaining proper ER structure and contains the first known cisternae specific marker. I have a strong focus on image analysis and advanced microscopy techniques.

Projects as Principal Investigator, or Lead Academic if project is led by another Institution
