Understanding Stem Cells and Cellular Processes Through Imaging
Advances in imaging technologies and their application provides new and powerful methodologies to study stem cells and cellular processes at increasingly finer resolution, including cell-cell interactions and molecular and genetic regulation. This series features leading scientists applying a range of imaging approaches to understand critical process in systems and tissues from early development through adulthood. This event will take place on 7, 14, 21, and 28 March 2022. Sign up for emails about this event.

The first program of this series will highlight optical approaches to explore stem and progenitor function in normal and pathological hematopoiesis. Expected topics include intravital imaging of the bone marrow and hematopoietic niche, snapshot imaging, and single cell imaging of immune cells, among other approaches.

The second program of this series will explore experimental imaging approaches to study epithelial stem cells from the skin and intestine during homeostasis, regeneration, and disease. Expected topics include intravital imaging, live single cell imaging, quantitative imaging, and imaging in three dimensional culture.

The third program of this series will focus on (pun intended) cutting-edge imaging techniques in early development and pre-developmental processes. Topics are expected to include light sheet microscopy, live cell imaging, and super resolution imaging to study the early mouse and fly embryo and spermatogonial stem cells.

The fourth and final program of this series will highlight novel imaging approaches to capture complex processes of neural stem and progenitor cells, including asymmetric division at the cellular and epigenetic level. Presentations are expected to include intravital and single cell imaging among other approaches.
