Lucy Collinson is Head of the Electron Microscopy (EM) Science Technology Platform (STP) at The Francis Crick Institute (the Crick), London, UK. Lucy completed her PhD in microbiology before switching to cell biology and microscopy for her postdoc with Colin Hopkins. Her first core facility position was as Head of EM at the Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology (LMCB) at University College London before moving to the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute (LRI) and then the Crick. We caught up with Lucy to discuss her career, the volume EM revolution, FocalPlane and the upcoming JCS Special Issue on ‘Imaging Cell Dynamics’, which she'll be guest editing with Guillaume Jacquemet.
