Project Title:

Adaptive optics 3D-AO-SIM for fast 3D super-resolution SIM imaging of fixed and live tissues


(1) Develop a low cost, portable SR-SIM solution

(2) Implement adaptive optics (developed at the Booth Lab, Oxford) to an upright SIM setup (Deep-SIM) developed at the Micron Oxford Advanced Bioimaging Unit

(3) Apply 3D-AO-SIM imaging to precision cut liver slices

(4) Image cells within tissue and their interaction with small molecules, nanoparticles in perfused, precision cut liver slices by 3D AO-SIM

Expected Results:

(1) Deep-SIM setup with adaptive optics and fast SLM pattern generation operational to enable aberration-free 3D-SIM imaging of fixed cells demonstrated (<150nm xy <400 nm z-resolution)

(2) high resolution and high speed SR-SIM imaging of 3D structure of LSECs in 3D cell culture in vitro demonstrated (1 3D fps)

(3) interactions of small molecules and nanoparticles with LSECs in perfused sinusoids demonstrated
