Breaking the penetration limit of microscopy – Photoswitching Optoacoustics

Project description

Next-generation body imaging

Existing whole-body research technologies do not offer the necessary resolution down to the cell level. A holistic in vivo understanding of the interplay of cell populations, however, will offer unprecedented insights into biological and pathophysiological processes. The EU-funded SWOPT project will provide a novel optoacoustic imaging solution, tailored labels and analysis algorithms, that can detect individually labelled cells deep in tissues. The technology will offer the potential to recreate the three-dimensional structure of tissues augmented with molecular and gene expression information. For the proof of concept, researchers will apply the imaging technology to a model of renal cancer to obtain unique information on the tumor.
