In the coming age of post-genome science, molecular imaging technology, which is used to investigate the functions and interactions of biomolecules, will play a key role in understanding biological processes. In the context of the trend of "translational research," many approaches toward transferring the outcomes of basic research employing imaging technology to clinical diagnostics and treatments are being intensively trialed, especially in the United States. In this paper, we review microscope technologies being developed in this rising tide, including recent progress in laser technology.
