Chronic inflammation is associated with a variety of pathological conditions in epithelial tissues, including cancer, metaplasia and aberrant wound healing. In relation to this, a significant body of evidence suggests that aberration of epithelial stem and progenitor cell function is a contributing factor in inflammation-related disease, although the(More)
Multifrequency atomic force microscopy imaging has been recently demonstrated as a powerful technique for quickly obtaining information about the mechanical properties of a sample. Combining this development with recent gains in imaging speed through small cantilevers holds the promise of a convenient, high-speed method for obtaining nanoscale topography as(More)
Nanoscale characterization of living samples has become essential for modern biology. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) creates topological images of fragile biological structures from biomolecules to living cells in aqueous environments. However, correlating nanoscale structure to biological function of specific proteins can be challenging. To this end we have(More)
