The Kirchhausen lab, in collaboration with Nobel laureate and Janelia group leader Eric Betzig, has developed a microscope capable of capturing 3-D images and videos of cells inside living organisms in unprecedented detail. To enable such high resolution images, researchers combined two technologies: lattice light sheet microscopy, which Betzig developed in the early 2010s, and adaptive optics, a technique borrowed from astronomy. This work was published in a new study in the April 20, 2018 issue of Science. To learn more, read here.
