Bewersdorf Laboratory

Our research group is part of the Department of Cell Biology at Yale University School of Medicine and is also affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Engineering, the Kavli Institute for Neuroscience and The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Institute for Biological, Physical and Engineering Sciences. To facilitate the biological research of tomorrow, we are developing fluorescence microscopy techniques for pushing spatial and temporal resolution beyond the capabilities of current technology.


Our interests in the field of nanoscopy include STED microscopy, single molecule localization based microscopy (FPALM/PALM/STORM), and 3D particle tracking.


We are currently developing the next generation of these technologies by implementing adaptive optics, dual objectives, high-speed data acquisition technology, advanced image processing algorithms, and new protocols for sample preparation. Through extensive collaborations with our colleagues at Yale and at other institutions, we also apply our novel technology to  answer a diverse set of biological questions.
