How it all started
Building a Super-resolution microscopy (SRM) lab: Our imaging facility, the Surgical Photonics and Engineering Laboratory (SPEL) at Massachusetts Eye and Ear in Boston, MA, USA, was established in 2017. The goal of the SPEL was to design and build a platform with new super-resolution microscope. The group consists of an interdisciplinary team of optical engineers and people skilled in computer science and biochemistry to answer biological questions with impact in clinical applications.
Our growing team of researchers has been working with the latest technology to design and make super-resolution microscopy (SRM) accessible to intramural research institutes and to advance existing SRM techniques.
