Year Award Started: 2015

Microscope imaging of small animals such as the zebrafish is teaching us a great deal about heart
biology, leading to breakthroughs in treatment of human heart diseases. As part of this, it is useful
to monitor the heartbeat to a very high degree of accuracy – both for the direct information that this
gives, and because it is crucial if we want to take detailed 3D images of the beating heart. This
project will build a new method for monitoring the heartbeat that does not require an expensive
video camera and computer, as would usually be the case.
