Elizabeth Hillman’s Magic Microscopes: Seeing Inside the Brain

Biomedical Engineer Elizabeth Hillman, PhD, a principal investigator at Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute, is inventing new kinds of microscopes that create 3D movies of life in action. Her microscopes are helping researchers see the brain in a whole new light.

On this International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we hope that girls around the world will be inspired by the work of innovators like Dr. Hillman, and carve their own paths into science and engineering.
