A picture of a 4-camera panoramic optical mapping system during an
experimental run. An illuminated adult pig heart is visible at the center
of the picture.

What We Do
Sample Project 1:
- Work closely with colleagues to create detailed system specifications
- Perform proof-of-principle experiments at the research or teaching laboratory with prototype systems,
from which results can be used as supporting data for grant applications
- Use parallel design paths and perform frequent experimental tests to minimize development time and risk
- Collaborate on academic projects by helping design and perform experiments
- Analyze data from experiments and assist in drafting manuscripts
