Optogenetics techniques and technologies


Some of the most exciting work in neuroscience is enabled by emerging optogenetics technologies that allow the control of specific neurons in the brain, central nervous system, and other parts of the body. This webcast, sponsored by Kendall Research Systems and Laserglow Technologies, will present an introduction to optogenetics as a tool.


Advances in medical lasers and their applications


Medical and aestheticlasers have benefitted from technological advances that are enabling new applications. In this webcast, Dr. Juanita Anders, president of the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery, will discuss progress including ultrafastlasers and other advances for professional use, as well as systems for in-home use. She will explain how medical and aesthetic lasers are going beyond the traditional applications of hair removal and skin resurfacing to improve eye surgery, tattoo removal, and laser therapy. And, she will answer questions from the audience.


Intra-operative application of OCT


This webcast, sponsored by Wasatch Photonics, will discuss use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) during surgery, to improve both information available to the surgeon and outcomes for the patient. Using the example of ophthalmic surgery, Dr. Binder will  provide an overview of the commercially available OCT devices available for this application. She'll also use real-world examples to demonstrate how the technology can be helpful, and discuss the implications of OCT for intra-operative use in the future.


How to Choose Probes for Super-Resolution Microscopy


In this webcast, renowned microscopy specialist Michael W. Davidson will discuss the various modes of super-resolution microscopy and advances in fluorescent probe development for each one.
