This edition of MicaCam offers practical advice on the extraction of publication grade insights from microscopy images. Our special guest Luciano Lucas (Leica Microsystems) will illustrate how Mica’s AI-enabled software can be used to start the image analysis process. He will then deep dive into two Mica 3D images and explore spatial relationships between the different visible biological elements. The session concludes with the creation of high-fidelity video animations and other publication ready outputs.

Key Learnings

  • How to perform an initial rapid quantitative review of a 3D dataset of a paramecium
  • How to explore relationships between biological elements (e.g. organelles, cells, tissue regions) and organisms
  • How to perform a spatial analysis of a paramecium dataset
  • Learn how to easily create high impact SciCom materials such as video animations, charts and stills


Dr. Luciano Lucas , Director Data & Analysis – Leica Microsystems

Luciano received his PhD in Tumour Angiogenesis and Vascular Targeting Drugs from the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom. In the last 15 years Luciano has been focused on extracting spatial insights from nD microscopy images. He was heavily involved in the development of Imaris (Oxford Instruments / Andor / Bitplane) and lead the creation of Aivia (SVision / DRVision). Luciano joined Leica Microsystems in 2021 when it acquired SVision. He is now the Director for Data & Analysis for Leica Microsystems and is focused on Aivia / AiviaWeb and a range of data, image analysis and AI projects which will result in smarter Leica imaging systems in the future.

Dr. Lynne Turnbull, Senior Application Manager – Leica Microsystems

Lynne is a Senior Application Manager at Leica Microsystems. She received her PhD in Sydney Australia in cardiac biophysics and undertook postdoctoral training in San Francisco and Melbourne. Upon moving to the University of Technology Sydney, Lynne established and managed the Microbial Imaging Facility. Lynne joined Leica Microsystems in 2021 as a Senior Application Manager and is based at the EMBL IC in Heidelberg.
