Understanding the transition from optical aberrations to light scattering, by means of fluorescence fluctuation microscopy

CONTEXT When one tries to look deeper into cells or tissues, optical aberrations caused by the specimen itself lead to an enlarged Point Spread Function (PSF) and hence a degradation of the (...)

Optogenetic interrogation of engineered biological tissues

Mechanical signals, such as forces or stiffness, are crucial to many biological processes over a range of length scales. This project aims at studying how these signals are spatially (...)
