Director, Cell Sciences Imaging Facility (CSIF), Stanford UniversityBiography
Jon Mulholland, MS, trained as a cell biologist and microscopist while working for 15 years in the laboratory of Dr. David Botstein starting at MIT, then Genentech Inc. and finally Stanford University. While in the Botstein lab he applied fluorescent light and immuno-electron microscopy to study the actin cytoskeleton and vesicle trafficking in yeast. He has been director of the Beckman Center's Cell Sciences Imaging Facility (CSIF) at Stanford University (http://microscopy.stanford.edu/) since 2001. During that time he has overseen significant expansion of the CSIF by establishing its electron microscopy core, expanding components of its confocal and 2-photon microscopy services, as well as adding FLIM, super-resolution imaging instrumentation (OMX-SIM, STORM, gSTED) and lattice light sheet microscopy. Working with Dr. Stephen Smith in 2008 he added array tomography multiplex imaging to the CSIF. In 2019, with support from Stanford's School of Medicine and the Stanford Cancer Institute he established CODEX highly-multiplexed imaging services in the facility.
