Event Description

Full Description:
Multiphoton microscopy for in vivo optical biomedical imaging applications
Multiphoton microscopy is an emerging optical imaging technique with the capability of producing high-contrast, sub-micron resolution images of biological samples in vivo and in vitro. It relates to fluorescence confocal microscopy, one of the main working horses in modern biology and medicine, but provides additional dimensions to biomedical imaging, such as fluorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (FLIM) and cutting tissue/cells, compounded by reduced phototoxicity and staining-free imaging.

At UQ, a commercial multiphoton microscopy system suitable for in vivo biomedical applications, DermaInspect (JenLab) has been installed. This has been enabled by the UQ Major Research Equipment and Infrastructure grant awarded to a consortium of researchers led by Prof Roberts (Medicine). It is a purpose of this workshop to introduce this imaging system to a broad scientific community at UQ.

For technical questions please contact Dr Andrei Zvyagin [zvyagin@physics.uq.edu.au].

Directions to Room 4L-3A [See map]
The location of Room 4L-3A is best explained using the map. It is located at the northern corner of Building 1. Entry from Level 2 at location marked on Map: enter building, take lift to 4th Floor, exit lift, head west, turn right and continue to end of corridor. Entry from Level 1: 4L3A is three floors directly above Level 1 Entry point on map. Enter and follow signs to blue lifts. Exit lift at 4th floor and proceed 20m to nearest corridor junction.
