PNAS publication cited for new findings in biology by means of technically advanced imaging instrumentation. The recent study published in PNAS by the Single Molecule Biophotonics group led by ICREA Professor at ICFO Maria Garcia-Parajo has been recommended by The Faculty of 1000 as an important paper that provides new findings in biology by means of technically advanced imaging instrumentation.

The Faculty of 1000 is a publisher of services for life scientists and clinical researchers composed of 5,000 Faculty Members — senior scientists and leading experts in all areas of biology and medicine — plus their associates. The Faculty recommends the most important articles, rating them and providing short explanations for their selections. According to Prof. Ken Jacobson, a world leader expert in Cell Biology and member of the Faculty of 1000, “This paper constitutes an important contribution to the role of pericellular matrix components in organizing plasma membrane receptors; this involvement functions as a complement to the more heavily investigated membrane-associated cytoskeleton”
