Cadby Lab

The Cadby Lab sits at the core of the Bio Imaging centre, hosted within the Biophysics Research Group at the University of Sheffield, UK.

The group is known for the development of optical systems for biological imaging focusing on their application to real world problems, either by repurposing existing technology to build a better performing optical system, or by developing an entirely new system.

Our current research focuses on the study of cancer (funded by CRUK), Anti-microbial resistance (funded by the MRC), reproduction biology, photosynthesis (funded by the BBRSC) and neuroscience (industry funded).

Most of these projects are focused on novel camera development, and as such we work very closely with a number of companies, including: Hamamatsu, Andor Technologies, Cairn Research, Nikon, Proctor&Gamble, and IBM.
