Currently Dr. Periasamy is a professor of Biology and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, USA. He is an internationally recognized expert in advanced microscopy techniques, particularly in the area of molecular imaging in living cells, tissue and animal. A key area of his research is focused on the design and development of optical methodology including advanced light microscopy techniques to investigate/monitor exogenous and endogenous protein-protein interactions, intravital imaging and monitoring the physical parameters of endogenous molecules in normal versus cancer cells/tissues. He is the founder and center director of the internationally known W.M. Keck Center for Cellular Imaging (KCCI). Dr. Periasamy is one of the pioneers in the development of fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) for measuring the oscillations in cytosolic and nuclear free calcium in single intact living cells.
Dr. Periasamy contribution in science – published more than 100 articles in refereed journals, 130 invited lectures, 3 edited books, 5 guest editors to various journals, organized conferneces and workshops. He is a member of various scientific organizations and elected “Fellow” members of the SPIE Optical Society.
