Dr. Thomas Zapf (Leica Microsystems) -
invites you to join the post lecture receptions in each of the locations.
Stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM) is a new form of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, which surpasses the diffraction limit by using single-molecule imaging and photoswitchable probes to temporally separate the spatially overlapping images of individual molecules. This approach allows multicolor, 3D imaging of living cells with nanometer-scale resolution.
In her talk, Xiaowei Zhuang will discuss the general concept, recent technological advances and biological applications of STORM.
