Project 3

Label-free imaging of lipid-glucose metabolism in cells, tissues, and animals

MiROM-based optoacoustic imaging of inguinal white adipose tissue (iWAT). Lipids are visualized in red; amide II bands of proteins are visualized in green. The characteristic lymph node of iWAT was captured in the right upper corner. Both, adipocytes with large lipid droplets and low protein content and adipocytes with high protein content and smaller lipid droplets can be discovered.
