Applications Review - Highlighting Imaging Examples Using the IVM Intravital Microscope
Date: July 21, 2021
Time: 11 AM – 12 PM (EST)
Presenter: Dr. Pilhan Kim & Dr. Keehoon Jung
(August 26, 2021) Webinar #4 Live Virtual Demonstration of the IVM System
Welcome to the final 4-part series of the IVIM Intravital Microscopy. Using available models, we walked attendees through the system’s workflow as a user and provide in-depth information on setting up an animal for imaging, acquiring microscopic images using the software, and applying some post-processing techniques to obtain quantifiable results. Participants had the opportunity to ask questions throughout the webinar, which the team answered in real-time.
You will learn about:
Molecular imaging methods in brief
Intravital Microscopy for real-time visualization of live tissues and organs
IVM-MS, a new rapid all-in-one technology for Intravital Microscopy
Animal models and applications of the technique
After attending this webinar, attendees will understand the workflow of the IVM system, its hardware and software components, and its capabilities to acquire quantifiable microscopic images from dynamic processes occurring in live animals.
Selina has been working in the intravital imaging research field since 2014. She received Ph.D. in Graduate School of Nanoscience and Technology from KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology) in 2020. Dr. Ahn has focused her research on understanding in vivo multi-phase spatiotemporal cellular dynamics of transplanted HSPCs in bone marrow during early engraftment using a custom-designed video-rate intravital confocal microscopy system. In addition, she has extensive in vivo research experiences on comprehensive 3D spatial/temporal visualization and imaging analysis of various organs such as lymph node, lung, liver, spleen, brain… etc. As an application specialist in IVIM Technology, she provides hands-on practical supports for researchers in various research fields to take full advantage of intravital imaging techniques to maximize their research performance.
