This new type of microscope allows scientists to directly see cells inside living organisms. It is the first technology of its kind and it provides unprecedented details of what is happening in tissues.

In a new study in the April 20 issue of Science, researchers from Howard Hughes Medical Institute's (HHMI) Janelia Research Campus, Harvard Medical School and collaborating institutions report the development of this microscope capable of capturing 3-D images and videos of cells inside living organisms in unprecedented detail.

The resolution is so powerful that even sub-cellular structures are visible. Check out this video to see how it works! Like and share this amazing scientific breakthrough!
