About John and his research:
Over the past 5 years, John has lead the conceptual and practical development of the Systems Microscopy research platform, which is designed to facilitate an imaging-based systems biology approach to the study of individual living cells. Utilizing extensive experimental automation, quantitative imaging, custom image analysis software and an expanding array of statistical data analysis and modeling tools, this project now encompasses the work of several PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, as well as academic and industry collaborations. This cutting-edge research platform is now applied to the systemic analysis of cell migration from the molecular to the cellular level, with capacity to rapidly interrogate individual molecular targets, functional molecular networking, spatiotemporally-resolved intra- and inter-cellular heterogeneity, and novel aspects of cellular self-organisation.
