Interesting Engineering

MIT researchers have developed a new cell imaging technique that offers “the ability to observe up to seven different molecules simultaneously,” writes Amal Jos Chacko for Interesting Engineering. “This could open the door to a deeper understanding of cellular functions, aging, and diseases.”

IEEE Pulse

IEEE Pulse reporter Leslie Mertz spotlights Prof. Ed Boyden’s work on refining expansion microscopy. “My hope for expansion, looking 5 or 10 years out, is that it could help produce a map of molecules that is detailed enough to help us understand life itself,” says Boyden.


Dr. Francis Collins, director of the NIH, details how MIT researchers have developed a new low-energy imaging approach called three-photon microscopy that allows exploration of all six layers of the visual cortex in a mammal’s brain. Collins notes that the researchers are proving themselves to be “biological explorers of the first order.”

Boston Globe

MIT researchers have developed a microscope that can generate close to real-time images on nanoscale processes, reports Kevin Hartnett for The Boston Globe. The microscope allows “microscopic worlds that had appeared static suddenly leap into motion,” Hartnett explains.
