The next PostDoc Masterclass Seminar is taking place on the 23rd November at the Postdoc Centre on Mill Lane, from 6:30 – 8:00pm. ‘An overview of Molecular Imaging: from macroscopic to microscopic level‘ will be discussed by Dr Bangwen Xie (Cancer Research UK CI) & Dr Jérôme Boulanger (MRC LMB).
‘A promising research field is the use of whole-body non-invasive optical and opto-acoustic imaging modalities to select the most effective cancer treatment at an early stage. The speaker will discuss how a specific cell death probe, C2Am, can be used to detect the early responses of cancer cells to therapy using macroscopic imaging.
Another hot topic that will be presented is computational microscopy. Examples of how extended sensitivity and resolution can be achieved by using computational methods will be discussed, together with new algorithms that increase the capability of fluorescence microscopes and provide insight into the dynamics of molecular complexes.’
All (students, PIs, technicians) are welcome – please join us! With free pizza/wine/beer.
This week we also have a Stratech Rep, with some relevant products that will be on display, and the opportunity to have a chat with him during the break.
