We were imaging small unilamellar vesibles, about 100 nm in diameter, and I got a call to WHO Geneva for the COVID-19 Global Road Map… SARS-CoV2 is 120 nm and similar to the vesicles… to a single-molecule imaging expert, single virus detection is much easier.


Dr. Ghosh is a single-molecule biophysicist, with research interests in Light-matter interactions, Atomic-scale Mechanics and Fluidics, Computational Quantum Chemistry, Biomolecular interactions, Statistical Mechanics, and Nanolithography.
