Imaging Life with the Emerging Frontiers in Microscopy at the Advanced Imaging Center, HHMI Janelia Research Campus



John joined the Advanced Imaging Center in 2014 and has over a decade of experience at the interdisciplinary boundary of engineering, physics, and biology. During his time in the AIC, John has worked with nearly 100 groups in collecting, processing, and analyzing data on the instruments housed in the center. He is also heavily involved in educational outreach programs in order to disseminate better understanding of advanced imaging technology. Prior to joining the AIC, he was a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Gaithersburg, MD, USA. At NIST, John leveraged his expertise in cancer biology to adapt optical spectroscopy techniques for use in biological systems. John received his Ph.D. in Cell and Molecular Biology from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, USA where he investigated the influence of the tumor microenvironment on glioblastoma multiforme epigenetic state and tumorigenicity.
