Three UCI researchers receive funds to develop a nanoscale imaging microscope
Biomedical Engineering Professor Enrico Gratton, Ph.D., Research Associate Michelle Digman, Ph.D., and Developmental and Cell Biology Professor J. Lawrence Marsh, Ph.D., have been awarded a $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation to engineer a nanoscale imaging microscope capable of observing single-cell migration in vivo. Matching funds were also awarded by the UC Irvine Office of Research to support the establishment of the "W.M. Keck Nanoimaging Laboratory,” whose mission is to develop technologies that will revolutionize how protein dynamics are measured.
