Making Molecular Movies with QSTORM

Designed for museum audiences, this presentation detailed the ongoing interdisciplinary research project of a group of scientists and engineers who are collaborating to make a breakthrough in biological imaging. They are trying to use tiny quantum dots and new microscopy techniques to make movies of the molecular machinery at work inside living cells at a greater resolution than ever before.
