Jia Laboratory works on super-resolution optical microscopy,
developing and applying advanced biophotonic tools to study complex, dynamic biological
systems at the nanometer scale. Specifically, our research aims to invent a
host of methods that enable the extraction of structural, molecular and
functional information from intact tissues and organisms, including optical wavefront
engineering, single-molecule biophysics, adaptive optics, phase
microscopy, large-data processing, advanced instrumentation, nano-fabrication, etc.
These projects employ interdisciplinary knowledge across physics, engineering
and biology. In collaboration with researchers at Stony Brook University
and elsewhere, we hope our technologies would provide new insights and
solutions to challenges in biological and ultimately clinical research.
