Optical lung scans of host-pathogen interactions

In a new publication that appeared today in the journal mBio we present light-sheet fluorescence microscopy that pinpoints critical immune cell populations responding to an invasive fungal lung infection.

Read more about our new research article on how a powerful microscopy technique helps scientists to find a needle in a haystack – only 2 micrometer thick fungal spores (50 times thinner than a hair) in an entire lung to learn about the ensuing immune response.
