Innovations in scientific imaging technologies such as ultrasound, MRI, photoacoustic, optical, X-ray, and quantum imaging could be transformative for biomedical applications and for understanding life at the cellular level. So, too, could advancing technology in visual proteomics that allows researchers to obtain near-atomic resolution readouts inside cells. The Frontiers of Imaging effort supports technology development to allow researchers to peer deep into tissues in order to better understand and cure disease. Read more.
