 Project objective

The project has a goal of starting up a small business producing highly special customizable microscope systems for biomedical research. Microscopic imaging is one of the major drivers of the progress in biomedical and life sciences. The development of novel concepts, addressing the challenges of advanced optical microscopy, represents the front line of scientific research. Modern microscopes are not purely optical devices anymore. They have developed into complex integrated systems, combining optics, mechanics, electronics, feedback control systems, and image processing Many novel concepts of modern microscopy, while very interesting for research, still have to prove the commercial profitability. Such developments can be effectively addressed by start-up companies with a goal of either custom development, production and service of these advanced systems, or development and selling the IP to a larger player. The major goal of this proposal is the creation of the first commercial optical microscope, the performance of which depends completely on the adaptive optics feedback controls. To prove the feasibility of this approach, we select a highly attractive technical concept of adaptive light sheet microscope, developed in our group in the framework of the ERC project. In this aspect, our development relates to ordinary microscope system in the same way as “fly by wire” airplane relates to an old-fashioned one. Our contribution in the development of instrumentation for biomedical research will bring a positive impact on our knowledge about the nature and ourselves, the quality of life and life expectation of the population. Our proposal addresses the largest societal challenge of Europe: the healthcare. Our instrument will contribute to the understanding of complex diseases and support the greying population to stay healthy and self-supportive for extended period of time.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "AIM" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
