Enejder leads the group of Molecular Microscopy with the goal to develop novel laser-based and scanning-probe microscopy techniques (CARS, SHG, Raman, 2P fluorescence, AFM) mapping 3D distributions, surface topographies and micromechanics of biomolecules in living cells and hydrated, soft materials/tissues without exogenous label molecules. We study e.g. stem cell differentiation, neurodegeneration, and cancer cell migration. As a visiting scientist in the Heilshorn Biomaterials Group, Stanford University, we also develop tissue-mimicking materials for live-cell microscopy. Enejder has been highlighted as leading female PI by SPIE in their “Women in Optics” Calendar.
