Cellular Imaging at the Nanoscale: an OHSU Research Symposium – June 27-28
The symposium will take place at OHSU on June 27-28, 2013, in the Old Library Auditorium. This event will showcase cutting-edge microscopy technologies that can be used to image biological systems at high resolution. Presentations and discussions will focus on imaging cellular systems in 4D, novel tools and probes for imaging, super-resolution microscopy (SRM), and correlated light and electron microscopy. Imaging experts, including Eric Betzig (Janelia Farm), Alice Ting (MIT), and Alan Waggoner (CMU), will share the latest developments in high resolution imaging in biological systems. Researchers from OHSU and the local community will share how advanced imaging methods have transformed their understanding of different cellular systems, including cancer cells, neurons, and pathogenic bacteria.
Attendance is free, but registration is required. Registered participants will receive an email invitation to participate in hands-on workshops:register here.
