We are a group of researchers at the University of Nottingham, Heriot-Watt University and University of Glasgow, developing a bespoke new instrument for optical imaging, micro-mechanical-sensing and the chemical perturbation of 3D cell cultures.


Our vision is to explore the micro-world from a cell’s perspective.
