Upcoming Webinars

Operating an Imaging Core Facility During a Pandemic

Speakers:

  • Julia Fernandez-Rodriguez, Ph.D.

    Head of the Centre for Cellular Imaging, Core Facility, Shalgrenska Academy, Univ. Gothenburg

  • Sebastian Munck, Ph.D.

    Head of the VIB BioImaging Core, VIB Center for Brain & Disease Research, KU Leuven

  • Josh Rappoport, Ph.D.

    Executive Director of Research Infrastructure, Boston College

  • Jennifer Waters, Ph.D.

    Director of Nikon Imaging Center at Harvard Medical School and Chan Zuckerberg Imaging Scientist

Operating a microscopy core facility during the current COVID-19 pandemic poses unique challenges. In this panel discussion, speakers from the US and Europe will present their varying perspectives and experiences to shed light on how core facilities and labs around the world are addressing social distancing and safety concerns for their users as institutions re-open and ramp-up research activities.

Organoids as an Infection Model for SARS CoV-2

Speakers:

  • Steeve Boulant, Ph.D.

    Group Leader, Dept. of Infectious Diseases, Virology, Heidelberg University

  • Nuria Montserrat, Ph.D.

    ICREA Research Professor, Pluripotency for Organ Regeneration, Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia

Organoids are becoming a powerful tool for studying tissue-specific host/pathogen interactions. However, their complex, three-dimensional organization can present major challenges. In this webcast, the speakers will discuss advantages, limitations and pitfalls inherent to organoids for studying host/pathogen interactions, including SARS CoV-2 infection.

Advances in Artificial Intelligence in Microscopy

Speakers:

  • Florian Jug, Ph.D

    Research Group Leader, Center for Systems Biology Dresden, Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Dresden, Germany; Fondazione Human Technopole, Milano, Italy

  • Martin Weigert, Ph.D

    Group Leader, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland

  • Christophe Zimmer, Ph.D

    Research Director, Institut Pasteur, Paris, France

The goal of this webinar is to introduce the audience to deep learning techniques for microscopy image analysis. We will give a short introduction to the foundations of deep learning for image analysis and then cover various methods for image denoising and restorations, for super-resolution microscopy, label-free prediction, and cell/object detection. After the webinar, all speakers will be available for an extensive Q&A, giving the audience the chance to ask technical as well as application specific questions. This webinar is mainly targeted to life-scientists working with microscopy image data.

Past Webinars

Imaging Applications for R&D, Screening & Quality Assurance

Speaker:

  • Jeff Bylund, Ph.D

    Applications Manager, Stem Cell & Regenerative Medicine, Nikon Instruments, Inc.

Collecting imaging data on the microscopic scale has become an essential part of any life sciences venture. Images not only provide striking visual insights into the microscopic world, they also contain a host of quantifiable, multi-dimensional information that can be used to improve key analytical processes in multiple areas of the biotech and pharma workflow. During this webinar we will cover exciting advances in imaging technology and how these advances are moving microscopy from R&D into screening and quality assurance.
