Prof. Maxfield is no longer accepting new graduate students.

photoThe central focus of the Maxfield lab is the development and use of new optical microscopy and biophysical techniques to study the properties of living cells. We use digital imaging devices, confocal microscopes, multiphoton microscopy, automated microscopy systems, and image processing computers to analyze processes occurring at specific sites within cells.
