Bin Yang

Optical Scientist

Passionate about optical microscopy.

Bin joined the Royer lab at the CZ Biohub to lead the development of cutting-edge light sheet microscopy methods to image large samples such as Zebrafish embryos and larvae. He also support the lab's goal of building a comprehensive atlas of vertebrate development. Bin has made key contributions to the development of single objective lightsheet microscopy -- a new approach to lightsheet imaging that better facilitates sample mounting and thus allows imaging of a greater variety of samples compared standard multi-objective lightsheet microscopes.

Bin completed his PhD at the University of Bordeaux (France), where he developed new super-resolution microscopy methods. He then joined Bo Huang's lab at UCSF for a postdoc, where he invented the eSPIM, the first uncompromised high resolution single objective light sheet microscope.

Overall, Bin is interested in developing new imaging tools that enable new biological discoveries, by improving spatial-temporal resolution, increasing imaging throughput, introducing user-friendly imaging modalities, open-sourcing microscope design, and more...
