A Research Team Led by Prof. Jianan QU Developed an Adaptive Optics Two-photon Microscopy which Would Shed New Light on the Neurodegenerative Diseases in the Central Nervous System

A research team led by Prof. Jianan QU has developed an adaptive optics two-photon excitation fluorescence microscopy (AO-TPEFM) using direct wavefront sensing for high-resolution in vivo fluorescence imaging of mouse retina, which allows in vivo fundus imaging at an unprecedented resolution after full AO correction.  The advance will provide a promising ground for non-invasive retinal imaging, and would also shed new light on the neurodegenerative diseases in the central nervous system (CNS).  The research work was published in the journal Light: Science & Applications on May 6, 2020.
