For decades scientists have utilised fluorescent properties of small molecules and proteins to drive scientific progress. Fluorescent applications include intracellular and extracellular labelling of molecules, proteins or entire cells for both, fluorescent imaging or fluorescence activated cell sorting. Specific promoter mediated, irreversible activation of fluorescent protein expression allows scientists to label stem cells and their progeny in vivo. Recent development in Superresolution microscopy technologies opens doors to subcellular studies at unprecedented resolution.

On Wednesday 15th July at Homerton College Cambridge, CamBioScience is hosting a state-of-the-art fluorescent imaging seminar for scientists across all relevant disciplines. Leading expert Prof. Clemens Kaminski,leader of the Laser Analytics Group at the University of Cambridge will talk about his recent developments in superresolution imaging and its applications. In addition, Dr. Filipe Lourenco, senior scientist from the Winton lab at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute, will elucidate how to achieve deep imaging of intact transparent intestinal tumours and how knowledge obtained from these studies helps to better understand tumour development and growth. The talks will be followed up with a wine & cheese fuelled networking session as well as a chance to interact with leading academic and industry specialists in these techniques. As part of this event, we invite you to participate in our “Fluorescent Science” – Image competition. 1st Prize: Free canvas print of your submission by UPROSA (up to 30″x30″).

This talk is part of the Molecular Techniques Seminars series.
