Super-resolution microscopy has overcome the diffraction limits of conventional confocal microscopy and revolutionized how scientists are able to characterize and define subcellular components at nanometer levels of resolution. Stimulated emission depletion (STED), a form of super-resolution microscopy, has become an essential tool to enable scientists to explore and discover novel cellular targets and key signaling pathways involved in the onset of disease states.
In this webinar, leading imaging experts from Oxford University and Baylor College of Medicine will discuss their experiences using STED to push the boundaries of super-resolution microscopy to explore, uncover and define the intricate machinery involved in immunological pathways and infectious disorders. Christian Eggeling, PhD and Dongfang Liu, MD, PhD, will share experimental examples and case studies using STED microscopy.
In this webinar you will learn:
- The principles and advantages of STED microscopy over traditional optical imaging
- How super-resolution microscopy is being used to examine and characterize molecular and cellular mechanisms of specific immune pathways in live cells
- Exciting new applications using STED to further examine at a nanoscale level, the functional characteristics of immunobiology.
Who should attend:
- Molecular and Cellular Immunologists
- Microscopy and imaging scientists
- Virology and neurobiology researchers
- Scientsts examining cellular pathways and signaling
