Research Overview

Our research program focuses on the application of multiphoton laser-scanning microscopy (MPLSM) to the study of biological processes in vivo, i.e. in living, intact tissue. We undertake the creation of novel MPLSM-based imaging and measurement techniques, as well as their application to the study of tumor biology in vivo, with an emphasis on the biology and biophysics of breast cancer.
