Unlocking the secrets of living cells
By developing new microscopy techniques that peer deep inside living cells, an interdisciplinary team of BU scientists and engineers soon could enable medical researchers to better understand the subcellular processes in pathogens such as E. coli, salmonella, and shigella. In 2002, their research team received a $1.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a technique called high-resolution spectral self-interference fluorescence microscopy, which has the potential to produce images of biological phenomena where points as close as a few nanometers apart can be clearly differentiated.
