Live Cell Imaging Using Photothermal Effect

Live Cell Imaging Using Photothermal Effect

We can use this microscope to actually
track down the lipid inhibitor which is used for cancer treatment, that we
can for the first time to see how a live cell uptake this drug and where
this drug goes inside the cell. This live cell imaging was considered to be
impossible for quite a long time and this really breaks the convention and
also in the meantime opens a lot of opportunities for this research
field. I believe this can be used for a lot of things including drug delivery,
cancer treatment. As a long-term goal we will apply this to the human body for
diagnosis and the treatment.
