Optical microscopy has long provided a window into the microscopic world, but there is always a demand to see more. Nowhere is this demand greater than in living cells where basic physical processes are regulated by proteins that live highly dynamic and interactive lives. To view the rich detail of this living world, scientists have started breaking rules to enhance the resolution of their microscopes. Super-resolution microscopy has opened new doors in the experimental study of molecular dynamics in living systems.

Jan Scrimgeour is an applied physicist with interests in microscopy and soft materials. He received his undergraduate degree in Optoelectronics and Laser Engineering from Heriot-Watt University, Scotland, before earning a doctorate in Physics from the University of Oxford. As a Postdoctoral Fellow, he discovered the fascinating world of soft squishy things – sometimes known as biology. Jan joined the Department of Physics at Clarkson as an Assistant Professor in 2013.
