Chiara Stringari is a researcher at the French National Center for Scientific research (CNRS) at the Laboratory for Optics and Biosciences (LOB) at École Polytechnique. Besides her strong background in non-linear optics (NLO) and instrument development she is also committed to an interdisciplinary research approach. Her main research interest lies in the development of innovative and advanced methods in NLO and Biophotonics for applications in biology and medicine to study physiopathological processes in cells and tissues and for non-invasive screeningShe has been developing multimodal label-free microscopy methods such as Two-Photon Fluorescence Lifetime Microscopy (2P-FLIM) with intrinsic biomarkers, polarization resolved Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) and Third harmonic Generation (THG) microscopy and advanced NLO computational modeling. Current research developments involve fast Fluorescence Lifetime Microscopy methods for functional metabolic imaging of live and large tissues and NLO based methodologies for probing myelin distribution and organization in healthy and pathological brain tissues in a multi-scale manner.
