Indiana CTSI ATP seminar series: Light-Sheet Technology and Applications
Apr 23 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) Access Technology Program is starting a new technology-based seminar series. The purpose of this seminar series is to inform investigators how existing or new technologies offered by the core facilities at Indiana University, IUPUI, Purdue University, and University of Notre Dame could be useful in advancing their research.

The topic for the seminar on Friday, April 23 is “Light-Sheet Technology and Applications,” led by Christopher English, PhD, Bruker Nano Surfaces. This event is being hosted by the Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility, Sara L. Cole, PhD, Optical Microscopy Core Program Director University of Notre Dame.

Light-sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) enables large-scale three-dimensional imaging at high imaging speeds with less phototoxicity and photobleaching. The Bruker MuVi microscope provides flexible illumination and detection configurations suitable for imaging samples from fields as diverse as cell and developmental biology, neuroscience, oncology, and plant research. In this presentation, you can expect to learn the advantages of light-sheet fluorescence microscopy and how this technique can be adapted to image a variety of live, fixed or cleared samples.

Registration information is available here. 

The seminars will be on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from noon to 1 pm, continuing through May.

For questions or to be added to a mailing list for seminar announcements, email Jill Reiter, PhD, Director, Indiana CTSI Access Technology Program.

Indiana CTSI ATP seminar series: Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for Molecular Imaging
May 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) Access Technology Program is starting a new technology-based seminar series. The purpose of this seminar series is to inform investigators how existing or new technologies offered by the core facilities at Indiana University, IUPUI, Purdue University, and University of Notre Dame could be useful in advancing their research.

The topic for the seminar on Friday, May 28 is “Positron Emission Tomography (PET) for Molecular Imaging,” led by Todd Sasser, PhD, Head of PCI Applications, Americas, Bruker BioSpin. The featured core facility is Roberts Translational Imaging Facility, Yu-Chien Wu, MD, PhD, DABMP, Director, IU School of Medicine.

The Bruker 9.4T magnetic resonance (MR) scanner delivers in-vivo/ex-vivo images with high spatial and temporal resolution. Parallel with any MRI method on this machine, the compatible PET insert offers high resolution, high sensitivity, and high quantification accuracy, allowing for simultaneous PET/MR imaging in basic research and translational medicine. Applications in multiple fields are available with these advanced preclinical imaging solutions, including, but not limited to: oncology, neurology, cardiology, inflammation, functional and anatomical neuroimaging, orthopedics, cardiac imaging, and stroke models.

Registration information is available here. 

The seminars will be on the 2nd and 4th Fridays from noon to 1 pm, continuing through May.

For questions or to be added to a mailing list for seminar announcements, email Jill Reiter, PhD, Director, Indiana CTSI Access Technology Program.
