August 2008 - April 2011

The Gustafsson Lab was dedicated to creating new forms of light microscopy for biological imaging.

The nature of its work was highly interdisciplinary – drawing from the toolboxes of physics, mathematics, engineering, computer science, and cell & molecular biology to develop and apply advanced imaging techniques.  The Lab concentrated primarily on two areas:

  • Developing microscopes with spatial resolution beyond the diffraction limit; such microscopes have been demonstrated to be compatible with live-cell imaging. 
  • Finding new ways of rapidly imaging three-dimensional specimens

Mats G. L.  Gustafsson passed away in April 2011 after a courageous battle with brain cancer.  In his honor, The Mats Gustafsson Memorial Symposium on High Resolution Imaging was held May 20 – 23, 2012 at Janelia Research Campus.
