Nozomi Nishimura, PhD

Nozomi Nishimura, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering at Cornell University and develops optical tools for studying in vivo cell behaviors in disease. The lab, jointly run with Dr. Chris Schaffer, studies the complex actions of cells in vivo and develops intravital multiphoton microscopy imaging methods that reveal how cells function, move and interact. Injury triggers the recruitment and activation of many immune and inflammatory cell types that, together with the local cells, determine the course of the disease progression. The goal is to develop methods to visualize all of these cells at once and quantify cell actions and function.
