Additional Information

Doug received his PhD from the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine at Queen’s University (Canada) in the field of cancer cell biology. Following his graduate studies, he continued to refine his skills as an Alexander von Humbolt post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Professor Stefan Hell (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2014) at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry. Here, Doug worked on a number of biological applications for super-resolution imaging. Since 2013, Doug has been the Director of Imaging at the Harvard Center for Biological Imaging, and since 2016 a Lecturer in Harvard’s Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology.  Doug investigates, evaluates and teaches a wide range of light microscopy techniques including super-resolution, lightsheet, multi-photon, live-cell and confocal microscopies as well as tissue clearing techniques and image processing methodologies.
