Julien Colombelli: "Building a research microscope from Lego blocks will hopefully motivate kids"


The RNE programme "Entre paréntesis" interviews Julien Colombelli, manager of IRB Barcelona's Advanced Digital Microscopy Laboratory, on the occasion of the official presentation of LegoLish-Mot (Lego Light Sheet Microscopy-Motorized) during the Youth Mobile Festival (YoMo) Barcelona. 

Julien Colombelli, co-inventor of the microscope, explains that “building a research microscope from Lego blocks will hopefully motivate kids to discover an innovative light sheet microscope (a kind of microscope that illuminates the sample with a sheet of light)". It is a unique project that brings the latest 3D imaging technology to students.
