Dr. Suliana Manley graduated with honors from Rice University in 1997 with degrees in physics and mathematics. She completed her Ph.D. at Harvard University with Dr. David Weitz, then moved down the street to MIT to do postdoctoral work with Dr. Alice Gast. Her expedition into the exciting and complex world of biology and super-resolution microscopy began when she moved to the NIH to work with Dr. Jennifer-Lippincott Schwartz. In 2009, she started her own group as a professor of physics at EPFL, where she was recently tenured. Her group focuses on developing tools such as novel fluorescent probes and high-throughput super-resolution imaging to understand cellular organization and dynamics.
