Claudia S. López, Ph.D.

  • Research Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering, School of Medicine
  • Director, Multiscale Microscopy Core
  • OHSU Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine, School of Medicine


Claudia López, Ph.D. has extensive experience with electron microscopy research including Transmission Electron Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Dual-Beam applications and Serial Block Face Imaging. Her formal training is in biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology and she has worked in the biochemistry-biophysics and microbiology fields for the past 22 years.

Her expertise includes the analysis of both biological (cells, viruses, bacteria, particles and tissues) and non-biological materials (hard materials and fabrics) by TEM, SEM and FIB-SEM and she has routinely performed sample preparation (conventional and cryo-processing), electron microscopy imaging and image analysis.

As part of her research interests Dr. López is developing correlative light and electron microscopy techniques for cultured cells and tissues, both for 2D and 3D electron microscopy.
