The Kner Lab develops new techniques for improving the resolution of three-dimensional fluorescence imaging. We are interested in combining different super-resolution techniques (structured illumination, STORM) with adaptive optics for obtaining sub-diffraction resolution throughout model organisms such as C. elegans and zebrafish.

We are recruiting graduate students and postdocs! Please contact me (Peter Kner) if you are interested.
