Long time without an update! Lots to share:
- Peter’s multicolor SIM paper, the first multicolor SIM using a digital micromirror device, is now published in Biomedial Optics Express.
- Doug was named a Scialog Advanced Bioimaging Fellow.
- The lab was awarded two Scialog collaborative awards.
- Steven has brought our TilingSPIM back online and should have new code and results to share soon.
- Katelyn Hernandez and Jess Ullom joined us as new graduate students.
- We had a group retreat to Flagstaff, AZ in early August to escape the heat and discuss projects for the year.
Like everyone, we have had a crazy time with COVID-19. But lots of exciting news:
- The high NA OPM is now published in eLife.
- The multicolor SIM preprint has been updated with new modeling and live-cell imaging.
- Dr. Lei Zhou joined the group. She is will be working on new multiplexed RNA-FISH approaches.
Doug presented our work on truly quantitative imaging of intact lungs using tissue clearing, uniform labeling, and uniform light sheet imaging at the 2020 Quantitative Bioimaging conference.
We welcome Rory Kruithoff to the group as lab manager and staff scientist! In addition to managing the lab, Rory will be working on highly multiplexed RNA and protein labeling in cells and tissue.
We welcome Dr. Peter Brown to the group at ASU! Peter will be working on optical and computational methods development.
Welcome Ben Muhlmann to the group at ASU! Ben will be working on computer vision for analyzing imaging data.
Doug participated in the Eighth General Human Cell Atlas meeting.
Christina’s paper is now accepted at Biology Open and her work was presented at the 2019 BioImage Informatics Conference. Congrats Christina!
Doug participated in the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Seed Network kick off meeting.
Doug presented our cleared tissue light sheet work at a Telluride workshop.
Our multi-PI R01 with the Abman laboratory has been funded by the NHLBI. We are excited to continue our work together on lung development!
We are part of the Human Lung Cell Atlas v1.0, one of the funded Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Seed Networks!
Doug presented Christina’s work (preprint) on high-throughput imaging of primary cells at a Telluride workshop.
Doug participated in the Seventh General Human Cell Atlas meeting.
Doug lectured at a postgraduate course at the 2019 American Thoraic Society meeting. We demo’ed our traveling cleared tissue light sheet outside of Colorado for the first time!
Doug presented Christina’s work on heritability in drug response and Leo presented his extended field of view OpenSPIM design at the 2019 Biophysical Society Meeting.
Doug recently gave a Photonics Media webinar on cleared tissue imaging using light sheet fluorescence microscopy. You can watch it here.
We welcome Jemal Imam as a new research assistant to the group.
Happy new year! We welcome to Gabriel Martinez Sanchez as a new BioE BS/MS to the laboratory.
We have been awarded a NIH R56 award for spatial mapping of endothelial progenitor cell programming in the developing lung.
We have been awarded a RNA Bioscience Initiative RNA Biology grant for spatial multiplexed RNA mapping of the immune response in the mouse olfactory bulb.
Our collaborative NIH R21 proposal to build an implantable SIM microscope has been funded by the NIH.
Our collaboration with the Munsky and Neuert laboratories on identifying predictive models from single-cell gene expression imaging data sets is now online at PNAS!
Our proposal with the Hankinson laboratory on applying spatial molecular expression imaging to pediatric brain cancers has been funded by The Brain Tumor Charity.
Our collaboration with the Macklin and Restrepo laboratories on the effects of mild myelin disruption is now online at eLife!
