Visualizing 3D structure and dynamics at the molecular scale is a current and critical need in biomedical research. Many sub-cellular features, for example the morphology of many organelles or the 3D organization of chromatin, cannot be resolved by standard light microscopy.

Improving the resolution of light microscopy has therefore been an urgent need of biological research for many decades. Today, several methods achieve sub-100 nm resolution by taking advantage of reversible or irreversible photo-physical switching properties of fluorescent markers.

Our research group in the Department of Cell Biology at Yale University School of Medicine is developing new fluorescence microscopy techniques with spatial and/or temporal resolutions exceeding far beyond current technology and also applying them to a diverse set of biological questions.
