Visualizing cell science

Scot Kuo directs the Cell Motility & Mechanics Lab and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Microscope Facility.  His cell mechanics research group has created laser-based microscopy techniques to monitor the way cells change shape and exert force.  Scot’s lab discovered molecule-sized nano-stepping of bacterial pathogens undergoing actin-based cell motility, which is a fundamental process for most cells.  The Kuo Lab is currently refining single-molecule detection techniques, super-resolution microscopy, multiphoton microscopy, and correlative light-electron microscopy.
