NEAR FIELD OPTICAL POINT MEASUREMENTS ON LIVING CELLS

Award Year / Program / Phase:
1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
HHS
Principal Investigator:
Szulczewski, michael j
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (Adapted from applicant's abstract): Our understanding of the molecular control of neuronal function and synaptic transmission is limited because studies are performed using high resolution molecular genetic approaches within the limits of diffraction limited optical microscopy. To… More
