Imaging and microscopy tools have greatly facilitated research towards the understanding of human health and disease. Starting from the first microscopes, the tremendous advancement in imaging technologies has led to scientists being able to observe biological structures and processes in unprecedented detail. Knowledge gained from the application of these instruments and methodologies has illuminated unknown facets of the functioning of biological systems in the continuous quest for scientific discovery. Modern imaging systems also represent a true multi-disciplinary effort in discovery and innovation, with physicists, engineers, chemists, biologists and clinicians combining efforts to address pressing problems in biomedicine.
The RCB Bioimaging School will highlight popular imaging systems that have been extensively used in biology and biomedicine. The approaches showcased would include widefield, confocal and super resolution fluorescence imaging, laser capture microdissection microscopy, fluorescence correlation spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy and whole animal in vivo imaging. Academic scientists and applications’ experts from India and abroad will impart theoretical knowledge and practical training to showcase the power and versatility of these imaging methods, which have enabled path-breaking discoveries in basic biology and continue to revolutionize advances in biotechnology and medicine.
