Quick post here on upcoming webinar sponsored by NIH Intramural Research Program, "Applying New Imaging Techniques to Your Research." The deets are Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 12 Noon U.S. Eastern time. You have to register beforehand.
The resolution of light microscopy was long thought to be limited by the wavelength of light, but recent advances have far surpassed this barrier and the most recent technologies are now allowing for the super-resolution imaging of biomolecules at a subcellular level, including the visualizing membrane glycoproteins, observing physical interactions between proteins, and studying cellular processes in 3-D. This webinar will explore how some of the latest technologies can be applied and implemented to advance your research.
Even if this is not a research interest, it might be interesting for the practicing pathologist to see how new imaging techniques may be applied in the future to routine surgical pathology.
