Event Details & Abstract: 

Fluorescence imaging is a widely used method for resolving molecular events in cells and tissues. The development of genetically-encoded fluorophores and a detailed understanding of their photophysics is critical for quantitative bioimaging. Dr. Jimenez will provide an overview of the properties of fluorescent proteins and biosensors and describe some of his research to quantify and improve the performance of these important biological probes.Dr. Jimenez will also describe a new research direction aiming to dramatically enhance bioimaging by employing quantum optics techniques.
