State-of-the-art in imaging ? in vitro and in vivo

- A BioCampus Symposium, to be held at the Benzon Auditorium, The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Universitetsparken 2, 2100 Copenhagen

Major advances are being made in the ability to visualize molecular and cellular processes in vitro and in vivo. Improvements in the detector technologies as well as the development of specific labeled probes and advanced contrast agents have pushed the limits for imaging technologies and provide exiting possibilities of new insights into biological and pathological processes, as well as the effect of drug therapy.

At this symposium leading international experts will present the latest developments in light microscopy, experimental MRI and X-ray imaging.

11:00: Introduction, Prof. Bjørn Quistorff, Chairman of Priority Area BioCampus, The University of Copenhagen

11:15: Dr. Timo Zimmermann, Center for Genomic Regulation, Barcelona, Spain
Advanced Light Microscopy - Molecular imaging and resolution enhancement

12.15: Lunch

13:15: Professor Mathias Hoehn, Max Planck Institute, Cologne, Germany
MRI in experimental neuroscience: where are the limits?

14:15: Professor Franz Pfeiffer, Swiss Light Source, Paul Scherrer Institute, Villingen,
Switzerland, Advanced X-ray imaging

15:15 Coffee break

15:45 Dr. Christian Riekel, ESRF, Grenoble, France
Imaging technique using microbeam small- and wide-angle X-ray scattering
