Quantitative phase imaging of cell disorder receives media attention

One of our lab's recent research papers has caught the notice of the press.  An article in New Atlas highlights the findings of a Biophysical Journal paper, published by Ph.D. student Will Eldridge and Professor Wax along with co-authors Zach Steelman and Brianna Loomis.  This work describes how the stiffness of cells, which is a key metric in the study of cell function, can be measured in a novel way: by sensing the level of disorder within the cell using Quantitative Phase Microscopy.
