Designed to help scientists benefit from the latest advances inlive cell imaging, Leica Microsystems this week sponsored thefirst in a new series of live cell imaging seminars.
Hosted bythe Institute for Animal Health in Pirbright, Surrey, the seminarfocused on techniques key to understanding dynamic intra-cellularevents.
These seminars provide scientists with practical insightsinto a range of new imaging opportunities.
Paul Monaghan from theInstitute for Animal Health and chairman of the seminarcommented, "The latest technology and imaging applicationshelp us to visualise exactly what is happening in living cellsand this is key to understanding cell function both in Health andDisease.
"Seminars like these provide an excellent platformfor knowledge sharing between scientists".
The seminar wasco-ordinated by Tracey McKeown, product manager at LeicaMicrosystems: "I was very pleased with the large number ofscientists that attended.
"This first seminar sparked quitea few lively discussions, highlighting the fact that scientistsare keen to learn more about these important techniques".Tom Wileman, from the Institute for Animal Health opened theseminar with a presentation on imaging viruses that cause Footand Mouth Disease and African Swine Fever.
This was followed witha hints and tips session by Nandini Hayes from the University ofKent on Aspects of Live Cell Imaging and a presentation by ElodieHoward-Cofield also from the University of Kent on Live CellImaging and Cancer Studies.
In addition, the day included talksby Mark Jepson, University of Bristol, on Imaging bacterialinfection of epithelial cells, Bebhinn Treanor, Imperial College,on Fluoresence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (Flim), and by ReginaNickel, University College London, on Fluorescence Recovery afterPhotobleaching (Frap).
