It all started…
In the sea! Thanks to a green fluorescent protein discovered in jellyfish nearly 60 years ago, scientists found a way to make biological samples sensitive to light. Since then, optical technologies using the properties of light waves in microscopy have continued to progress and make it possible to observe, analyse or manipulate living matter with ever greater precision.

This fusion of optics and biology has given rise to a major scientific field: biophotonics.

Confocal or two-photon microscopy, optogenetics… Discover these innovative technologies in our brand new video, with Valentina Emiliani!
