Welcome to the Spencer Lab for Advanced Microscopy

Check out our latest paper in Nature on novel live imaging of hematopoietic stem cells in the bone marrow.

Our lab’s work was also featured in a UC MercedĀ news article.

Our lab seeks to develop novel imaging and sensing systems to answer some of the most challenging biomedical questions.

Our projects include:

  • investigating new ways to image the thymus in live mice with subcellular resolution
  • developing faster oxygen sensing methods for in vivo applications
  • applying whole tissue imaging methods for studying immune reconstitution
  • developing imaging assays for regenerative medicine and other applications
