Dr. Richard Leapman

Richard Leapman, Ph.D., is the Scientific Director at NIH's National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), as well as Chief of NIBIB’s Laboratory of Cellular Imaging and Macromolecular Biophysics. His research focuses on the development of new methods based on electron microscopy and related techniques, with the ultimate aim to expand knowledge about complex biological and disease processes, as well as to characterize morphologically the action of diagnostic markers and therapeutic agents in cells. His group has been particularly active in developing the techniques of electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) and combining it with scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) to provide an unprecedented high spatial resolution for nanoanalysis of biological structures.
