Daniel Côté receives important funding to develop a microscopy system for molecular imaging of the living
Professor Daniel Côté will receive 489 299 $ from the Quebec Ministère de l'Économie, de l'Innovation et des Exportations, BLIQc inc., CRIUSMQ and SOVAR to valorize three technologies to improve microscopy systems for multimodal molecular imaging of the living. Côté and his colleagues at Université Laval and the CRIUSMQ have conceived technologies that make microscopic data acquisition simpler and faster, and the robustness of these technologies will facilitate the marketing of these products and their integration in existing systems. These technologies will be made available rapidly as individual modules to enhance existing microscopes. The project will also aim to integrate them in a multimodal platform that will be marketed as components of a complete system. Daniel Côté is Full Professor at the Department of Physics, Physical Engineering and Optics of Université Laval, and researcher in biophotonics at the Centre de recherche de l'Institut universitaire en santé mentale de Québec (CRIUSMQ) and at the Neurophotonics Centre.
