We are focusing on the development of the novel in vivo visualization techniques for the live animal in a single cell to single molecule resolution. In a recent decade, rapid advances of in vivo micro-visualization technologies have allowed us to catch a glimpse of numerous exciting processes such as gene expression, regulation, protein activity, drug delivery, cell trafficking, cell-cell interaction, physiological response to external stimuli in the natural microenvironment in vivo. We're now on the verge of a new era of micro-nano-scale in vivo visualization technologies those can be utilized as a novel versatile tool for basic and translational biomedical research as well as  a valuable clinical tool for cellular-level diagnosis and monitoring.

Our ultimate goal is to open up a new avenue to answer questions in biomedical science those are important but difficult to investigate by pioneering innovative visualization technology. We are looking for a talented student and researcher in multiple disciplines including engineering, physics, chemistry, biology and medicine as an active interdisciplinary team-work is the cornerstone to accomplish our goal.
