The Imaging Center specializes in the development and application of innovative imaging tools useful in 3D live cell and embryo studies.  Current areas of interest include: (1) multicolor cell labeling and multispectral imaging strategies for more accurate cell identification and cell tracking, (2) selective cell labeling and cell communication interrogation using photoactivatable fluorescent reporters and calcium indicators, (3) long-term, deep tissue embryo imaging using 2-photon non-descanned detection, (3) laser capture microdissection and gene expression analyis. The Imaging group uses the microscopy equipment provided within the Microscopy Center.
