Bioimaging Science and Technology

The Bioimaging Science and Technology Group was formed to bring together researchers that are interested in new imaging technologies and methods to further our understanding of biological mechanisms of human diseases.

Group Leader: Michael Insana
Support: Kelly McKinley

Faculty members in the Bioimaging Science and Technology Group develop new imaging technologies for medical diagnosis and treatment, as well as new methods for discovering the ways our bodies work. Because of the extensive imaging facilities at the Beckman Institute, researchers are able to explore very fundamental aspects of living systems from molecular interactions through population behaviors in ecosystems. Faculty are developing new technologies to discover how cells send and receive signals from their microenvironment, and how these signals change cells so they can cooperate to form specialized tissues and organs.
