Jeff Wyckoff

Jeff Wyckoff is a cancer and AIDS research scientist whose position allows him to work at the forefront of new technology. His piece “Alpha-Omega” (2003) presents a new view of cardiac and tumor tissues through multi photon microscopy, which sends a high wavelength infrared laser into a standard light microscope. When two beams join at the focal plane, the sum of the wavelengths create light at normal light microscope wavelengths with the advantage of deeper penetration and less phototoxicity. His imagery presents a menu of accompanying music created by four different composers in varying styles.
