Real-time IntraVital Microscopy (IVM): In Vivo Cellular-level Imaging of Internal Organs in a Live Animal

02 de noviembre | 10:00

Sala Ramón Areces, CBMSO (UAM-CSIC), Madrid | Evento Presencial

Speaker: Dr Pilhan Kim, Associate Professor Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) CEO/CTO IVIM technology

In this talk, IVIM Technology’s All-in-One real-time intravital two-photon and confocal microscopy system will be introduced. The imaging system has been extensively optimized for in vivo cellular-level imaging of internal organs in live animal model for various human diseases. It can acquire a real-time multi-color sub-micron resolution microscopic images in a live animal model with automatic motion compensation, enabling direct imaging analysis of complex cancer immune-microenvironment consisted of various immune cells, stromal cells, vascular cells and extracellular matrix. Intravital imaging of various organs including skin, liver, spleen, pancreas, kidney, small intestine, colon, retina, lung, heart, lymph node, brain, and bone marrow will be briefly introduced. Subsequently, recent studies utilizing the real-time intravital imaging technique to investigate dynamic cellular-level pathophysiology of various human diseases and develop new therapeutics will be introduced.
