Research

The Weisshaar group brings to together a variety of biophysical interests. The unifying theme of our work is to bring quantitation to the field of light microscopy. We believe that using microscopy as merely an imaging modality is a waste of important information that can be obtained by analyzing the quantitative nature of a micrograph. This quantitative information is in both the individual pixel counts and how these values change in time. There are three larger projects that our group works on, but they all utilize common techniques which allows us to work collaboratively.
