Goals of MOABC Research

Develop new optical imaging techniques that enable direct observation of biological dynamics and are capable of spanning unprecedented spatial scales (from the molecular level to multicellular levels) and temporal scales. These tools will significantly impact our ability to study, and understand fundamental biological processes.
