Project Description

Advanced imaging systems provide high resolution, 3-D images of the location of molecules in cells. Recent advances in imaging technology, genetics and molecular biology have dramatically increased the capabilities and impact of imaging systems. Our research requires a system capable of performing advanced imaging functions including the ability to distinguish between flurescent molecules with only small differences in their spectral characteristics, simultaneously image while ablating or exciting specific cells, and of detecting protein-protein interactions in cells. This system will enable us to continue to generate research of the highest international quality in neuroscience and cell biology.
