Fluorescent Materials for Cell Imaging


This book focuses on the latest fluorescent materials for cell imaging. Cell imaging is a widely used basic technique that helps scientists gain a better understanding of biological functions through studies of cellular structure and dynamics. In the past decades, the development of a variety of new fluorescent materials has significantly extended the applications of cellular imaging techniques. This book presents recently developed fluorescent materials, including semiconductor quantum dots, carbon dots, silicon nanoparticles, metal nanoclusters, upconversion nanoparticles, conjugated polymers/polymer dots, aggregation-induced emission (AIE) probes, and coordination compounds, used for various cellular imaging purposes. It will appeal to cell biologists and other researchers in academia, industry and clinical settings who are interested in the technical development and advanced applications of fluorescence imaging in cells, tissues and organisms to explore the mechanisms of biological functions and diseases.

Dr. Fu-Gen Wu is a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Southeast University. He received his BS and Ph.D. degrees from Tsinghua University in 2006 and 2011, respectively, and then completed his postdoctoral research at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor from 2011 to 2013. In early 2013, he joined the faculty of the School of Biological Science and Medical Engineering of Southeast University, and was promoted to Full Professor in the same year. His main research interests are cell imaging, biomaterials and nanomedicine.
