Richards biomedical imaging related experience can be broadly divided into the following areas (url links are provided for examples in each area):
1) Standard Light microscopy (DIC/Phase/fluorescent) and image processing (Volume deconvolution).
2) Laser based imaging: Confocal microscopy: Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy. High-speed two colour TIRF microscopy
a. TIRF example
3) Three dimensional imaging and volume reconstruction: Computed tomography (CT) imaging, and episcopic fluorescence imaging (EFIC) (for review see: Rapid high resolution three dimensional reconstruction of embryos with episcopic fluorescence image capture. Birth Defects Research Part C, Embryo Today: Reviews 72: 213-223, 2004.),
4) Live cell/tissue imaging: time-lapse imaging of cell motility in tissue Explants and whole mount tissue sections (Light/Fluorescence). High-speed imaging of cilia beat dynamics and measurement of cilia generated flow (fluorescent beads).
5) Specialty imaging techniques. Electrophysiology dye injection to quantify gap-junctional communication between cells.
