The lab researches new imaging platforms for biomedical applications, especially using light-sheet based techniques.

As we know, tissues are composed of multiple cell types organized in a complex three-dimensional architecture. However, because of the limited penetration depth of visible photons, observing the molecular and structural composition of intact tissues remains challenging.

Dr. Chakraborty's research in developing these microscopes extends the spatiotemporal resolution of biomedical imaging by harnessing the synergy between physics, biology, computer-science and engineering.
