Recently researchers at the University of Illinois discovered how to view live cells with a new technique which is called white-light diffraction tomography. This allows scientists to see cells in three dimension and see how cells respond in their native tissues. This technology may allow the study of new insight of how our bodies interact with surroundings and the outside world opening up a world of new possibilities. Seeing the cellular world and all of its interactions will allow for us to study how environmental factors and certain drugs affect us like never before.
