Dye angiography of blood flowing through the larval fruit fly cardiovascular system. The dye starts in the heart (top panel) and then travels through the aorta toward the head (lower panels).
Research Image 1
Doppler optical coherence tomography imaging of a larval fruit fly heart. This can be thought of as to optical echocardiography. The heart has a diameter of about 100 micrometers, which is about the diameter of a human hair.
Research Image 2
Particle pathline imaging of cilia-driven fluid flow. The ciliated skin of the embryo (bottom of the image) generates complex flow patterns that are visualized using flow tracer microspheres.
Research Image 3
Microfluidic mixing driven by a biological ciliated surface, in this case, a tadpole embryo.
Research Image 4
Decrease in embryo heart performance as ascertained using a novel optical imaging method developed in our lab.
