How do organisms develop from a single cell into a fully functional body, with billions of self-organizing cells that form tissues and have different functions?

Our Research

We are a pluridisciplinary team of computer scientists, optical engineers, and biologists. Our goal is to build a time-resolved, multidimensional atlas of vertebrate development using zebrafish as a model organism. To attain this goal, we design, build, and implement novel state-of-the-art light-sheet microscopes, and employ and also design deep learning–based image processing and analysis algorithms.
