Contact Information



Dr. Sara Makaremi is the Director of IQ Microscopy Core Facility, where investigators can access some of the most advanced fluorescence-based microscopes for imaging live cells and biological tissues in vivo. The microscopy core provides training and consultation to researchers.
Dr. Makaremi received her B.A.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toronto before pursuing graduate studies in Biomedical Engineering at Western University (M.E.Sc.) and McMaster University (Ph.D.). Her research mainly focused on tracking membrane proteins in live cells using advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques including Raster Image Correlation Spectroscopy and Single Molecule Tracking. Before joining MSU, she was an Associate Editor at Wiley, working with the editorial team of Advanced Materials Interfaces and Small Science. She also served as Editor for Microscopy Society of Canada for several years. She has coauthored a book titled “Fluorescent Microscopy,” published by Methods in Molecular Biology (volume 2440).
