What is the next big thing in your area of photonics research?
Neveen Hosny’s focus at M Squared Life is on developing technology that encompasses light interaction with biology.
“Our main research area is microscopy, specifically light sheet microscopy. Light sheet as a technology has exploded over the past few years, with a range of different approaches to deal with specific biological problems. However, the next big thing could be in label-free imaging and utilising NIR-mid IR lasers in microscopy,” she said.
However, these advances place high demands on current computational resources.
“The increase in data output brings the daunting task of analysing that data and users having the correct tools with which to handle their imaging pipeline. It’s very easy to visualise data, but that doesn’t provide statistics that lead to developments in new methods and therapies that can impact societal benefits, that could lead to a breakthrough in cellular mechanism leading to targeted drugs or therapies. Tools to process data are now the slowest part of light sheet imaging.”
