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 progenies in vivo. Further development of superresolution microscopy technologies opens doors for intracellular studies of unprecedented resolution.

On Wednesday 15th July at Homerton College Cambridge, we are hosting a state-of-the-art fluorescent imaging seminar for scientists across all relevant disciplines, destined for a wide audience ranging from inexperienced users to everyday users in both academia and industry. Leading expert Prof. Clemens Kaminski, group leader of the Laser Analytics Group at the University of Cambridge will give a state-of-the-art talk about recent developments in superresolution imaging and its applications in todays research. 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 networking session & wine and a chance to interact with 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 printing by UPROSA (up to 30″x30″).

We look forward to welcoming you!
