Wyss Wins $3.5M for Advanced Molecular Imaging Tech | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A research team at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University has reeled in a $3.5 million grant to develop a new method for molecular imaging that could break through the current boundaries of microscopy, the institute said today.

Using a National Institutes of Health Transformative Research Award, the Wyss group aims to develop a DNA-based microscopy that would enable scientists to distinguish healthy and diseased cells and study the molecular workings inside a cell.
