Fargo, N.D. – NDSU’s Advanced Imaging and Microscopy Core Lab will host a workshop Friday, April 27, to showcase the latest developments in microscopy and imaging. Robert Burghardt, professor and director of the Image Analysis Lab core at Texas A&M University, College Station, will present two seminars on the development and use of vital analytical cellular imaging and fluorescence probe technologies. The tools provide sensitive approaches to analyze the molecular aspects of cellular function. The time and place for the presentations are yet to be determined.
During his visit, Burghardt will consult with the leadership group of the NDSU Advanced Imaging and Microscopy Core Laboratory on recently acquired high-end microscopes. He also will share his experience working at the Texas A&M University Image Analysis Lab core, where some of the most advanced equipment in microscopy and imaging is used. Established in 1987 to serve the needs of the investigators in the College of Veterinary Medicine, the laboratory was later expanded to serve a broad cross section of the university and researchers outside the university. It is now a facility core for microscopy for various interdisciplinary faculties that involve both faculty and students.
The goal of NDSU’s Advanced Imaging and Microscopy Core Laboratory is to enrich the institution’s research and teaching environment through making available high-end microscopy and imaging equipment that most investigators would not normally be able to afford in their individual research and teaching programs.
NDSU is a top-ranked research institution that combines teaching and research in a rich learning environment, educating future leaders who will create solutions to national and global challenges that will shape a better world.
