Hari Shroff, PhD, is chief of the High Resolution Optical Imaging Laboratory at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), where he and his staff are developing new imaging tools for application in biological and clinical research. In 2001, he received a BSE in bioengineering from the University of Washington. Then in 2006, with the support from his Fannie and John Hertz Foundation Fellowship, Dr. Shroff completed his PhD in biophysics at the Unversity of California at Berkeley, under the supervision of Dr. Jan Liphardt. He spent the next three years performing postdoctoral research under the mentorship of Eric Betzig at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Farm Research Campus where his research focused on development of photactivated localization microscopy (PALM), an optical superresolution technique.
