Visualizing Cellular Behaviors in Bacterial Biofilms using Lattice Light Sheet Microscopy

Presidential Fellows Project by Jie Wang and Mingxing Zhang

In this project, researchers Jie Wang (Electrical and Computer Engineering) and Mingxing Zhang (Chemistry) investigated the growth dynamic of bacterial biofilm with lattice light-sheet microscopy (LLSM), which is able to resolve individual cells within thick 3D biofilms in a non-invasive manner.
