The study of fluorescent live samples using microscopy enables scientists to gain a better understanding of the biological functions in cell dynamics. However, the illumination used for fluorescent imaging can potentially lead to photodamage, especially in the case of living samples. Giulia de Luca explores ways of limiting these effects in order to improve imaging quality. She focuses specifically on the resolution and sensitivity of a new technique called re-scan confocal microscopy.
