published on 3 Dec 2019

Project: Label-free 3D optical imaging and characterization of retinal organoids (18 months) Research program: The project aims to develop a non-invasive 3D live imaging microscope based on dynamic full-field optical coherence tomography (FFOCT), a technique invented at the Langevin Institute. It will fulfil an unmet need for in vitro screening of 3D retinal organoids and 2D cell cultures developed at the Vision Institute for eventual graft and new therapies evaluation. The candidate will design this microscope optimized for the longitudinal study of live organoids. He will build the microscope at the Vision Institute and will start performing the longitudinal evaluation of the organoids. The candidate will participate to the precise characterization of the observed signal, and to the automatic analysis of the organoid main features (cell density, cell types, activity, etc..)
