A Postdoc in microscopy and spatial multiomics is available in the Shi lab at University of California, Irvine, funded by grants from the NIH and private foundations. Our mission is the development of cutting-edge spatial multiomics technology and super-resolution microscopy methods.

We have ongoing research efforts in (1) developing novel spatial multiomics (transcriptomics, epigenomics, proteomics, etc.), and new super-resolution microscopy (2) studying structure-function relationships in the nucleus, cross-organelle interaction, and cell signaling with super-resolution microscopy, and (3) interrogating mechanisms of Alzheimer’s Disease and cancer heterogeneity via imaging and spatial multiomics.
