Microscopy has played a vital role in the history of biological sciences. From the first microscopes to Zernike's phase contrast and modern laser scanning fluorescence microscopes, each new technology has opened up new windows onto the mechanisms of life. The Levene lab works to extend the impact and reach of multiphoton microscopy and optical spectroscopy through elegant technological innovations, many of which are ready for rapid adoption by biologists who are otherwise naive in optical physics.

The major thrust of our research falls into three categories:

  1. Extending the range of multiphoton microscopy for both Neuroscience and clinical applications
  2. Clinical application of fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy
  3. Spin-off projects, including single molecule imaging, novel forms of ultrasound, and counterfeit money detection
