Bioimaging is our window into the structure and dynamics of cells and tissues. Understanding the interactions between cells and biomaterials is central to our work, and we are particularly interested in bioimaging modalities that can provide insight in a non-destructive, label-free manner.

  • Raman Imaging of Zebrafish: Dr Hakon Hogset, during his PhD at Imperial College London, developed a method of using confocal Raman spectroscopic imaging (cRSI) to generate biomolecular maps of living zebrafish embryos (Nature Communications 2020).
  • Immunogold FIB-SEM: Dr Sahana Gopal, during her PhD at Imperial College London, developed a technique for using immunogold labelling in combination with focussed ion beam scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM) to visualize protein expression and cell ultrastructure in 3D (Advanced Materials 2019).
