Researchers Prof Lloyd Hollenberg;
Brief description The convergence of the physical sciences, engineering and biology has been highlighted as one of the most significant themes of the 21st century, with the potential to create new technologies for the benefit of society. This proposal will establish multidisciplinary teams to forge a leading position in the application of emerging quantum imaging technology to important problems in the life sciences. We will apply imaging technology whose power derives from the quantum properties of fluorescent centres in diamond to open a new window on the basic functions of living cells and cellular networks in neuroscience. This new understanding of important biological systems will aid nano-medicine, drug testing and understanding of brain function.
