Kevin Dean, Ph.D., a postdoctoral Researcher in the Department of Bioinformatics mentored by both Gaudenz Danuser, Ph.D., and Reto Fiolka, Ph.D., will receive the 2018 Dean’s Discretionary Award.  Dr. Dean developed light-sheet microscopy methods that enable quantitative subcellular imaging and then combined the strengths of these one-of-a-kind microscopes with computer vision and genome editing to elucidate the contribution of specific actin regulators on cell morphodynamics and migration in 3D extracellular matrix environments.‚Äč
