Watch The Inner Life Of A Cell

Cellular processes are orchestrated by a large number of biomolecules in a spatially and temporally coordinated manner within a tiny volume. To uncover the underlying organizational principles and their functional relevance, we take microscopy visualization as the primary approach to systematically map the spatial localization, temporal dynamics and activity profiles of proteins and nucleic acids.

What We Are Interested in

Subcellular, high-resolution and dynamic mapping of the entire proteome
Physical organization and dynamics of the nucleus and the genome
Subcellular compartmentalization of signaling molecules

Technologies We Develop

Super-resolution and light-sheet microscopes

To visualize subcellular structures at a higher spatial resolution, record long term cell behavior, and track cells in intact animals

New Fluorescent Probes and Gene Editing Methods

For labeling of endogenous proteins

Computational Imaging and Machine Learning Techniques

Using data to see more clearly and do high throughput analysis

We're hiring post-docs and graduate students! 

We are particularly seeking talents in optical engineering, machine learning, and cellular microscopy. Aspiring graduate students must apply via the UCSF graduate application. Bioengineering PhD candidates must apply through UC Berkeley.
