LIN Symposium

Global Engage´s 2nd Microscopy Congress

Day Two – Tuesday 15th November 2016, 09.00-09.35
Keynote Address: Christoph Cremer, Professor, Group Leader, Super Resolution Microscopy, Institute of Molecular Biology, University of Mainz; Institute of Pharmacy and Molecular Biotechnology, Heidelberg University, Germany

Super-Resolution Light Microscopy: Challenges for Medical Research
Using super-resolution microscopy (SRM) approaches, both optical resolution (smallest distance measureable between two adjacent point sources) and structural resolution (smallest structural detail determined) can be enhanced very substantially. Here, we shall review some examples of the present state of the art of SRM in medical research and discuss the challenges still to be met to introduce such SRM technologies on a broader scale in medical applications, such as large field of view imaging; long working distances compatible with super-resolution of 3D extended objects; “nanoimaging” of multiple molecular target types (“multicolor SRM”); high throughput SRM to register thousands of cells in a short time, e.g. for tissue diagnostics or pharmaceutical research; as well as the development of fast & reliable data evaluation modes (“Instant Nanoimaging“).
