Dr. Peter Kner received an NSF CAREER Award to support his creation of the next generation optical microscope, which will take advantage of advances in chemistry, astronomy and photonics to achieve unprecedented resolution throughout large biological samples. This work has the potential to improve human health by advancing biological science and improving the study of organisms that are important models for human disease.

"In addition, this project will train the next generation of scientists in interdisciplinary research through the development of this novel instrument, as well as through a course in bio imaging taught by biologists, chemists and engineers," said Kner. "Students from different disciplines will be introduced to all aspects of bio imaging from preparation and staining of samples to construction of a microscope.”
