Moore Foundation Awards ASU Researchers $1.8M to Develop Microscopy Technology | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation has awarded researchers at Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute $1.8 million for the development of new microscopy technology for capturing molecular-level events in living systems.

The funding for three years was awarded to Nongjian Tao for a project titled "Label-free imaging and tracking of single protein-protein interactions" and will be used to develop a microscopy system based, in part, on plasmonic resonance. Tao directs Biodesign's Center for Bioelectronics and Biosensors.
