Biology at the single molecule level

Dr Donna Whelan (Research Fellow, La Trobe University)
Humans comprise ~37 trillion cells, each containing several trillion molecules. Hear how we harness interactions between matter and light (fluorescence) to visualize biology one molecule at a time so to understand the fundamental causes of disease.
