Expansion microscopy and virtual reality illuminate new ways to prevent and treat disease

(Carnegie Mellon University) A combined research team from Carnegie Mellon University and Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason is pairing a nanoscale imaging technique with virtual reality (VR) technology to create a method that allows researchers to 'step inside' their biological data. They will combine expansion microscopy with VR to enlarge, explore and analyze cell structures far beyond the capabilities of traditional light microscopy through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Grand Challenges initiative.
