Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health


Section on High Resolution Optical Imaging (HROI)

This is a picture of the laser configuration for optical imaging in the section on high resolution imaging

The Section on High Resolution Optical Imaging (HROI) develops novel technologies for studying biological processes at unprecedented speed and resolution. Research includes improving the performance of 3D optical imaging microscopes, particularly with respect to resolution and depth (e.g. multifocal structured illumination microscopy, MSIM) and speed and phototoxicity (e.g. inverted selective plane illumination microscopy, iSPIM). We collaborate closely with intra- and extramural researchers (both academic and commercial) to ensure that our microscopes are both easily and widely used. Along with researchers at Sloan-Kettering (Zhirong Bao) and Yale University (Daniel Colon-Ramos), we are using one of our technologies (iSPIM) to construct the first atlas of 4D neurodevelopment in an animal.
