PCCP Perspective: Measuring viscosity inside cells

In this fascinating PCCP Perspective Marina Kuimova of Imperial College London, describes the use of fluorescent molecular rotors to measure and image microviscosity within individual domains of live cells. Knowing about  this viscosity is important as diffusion plays an important role in many biological processes.
