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.

Imaging in the Hematopoietic System
7 March 2022
16:00 - 17:30 EST (view your time zone)

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.
