Biophotonics innovator Sunney Xie presents webcast on nonlinear coherent optical imaging

Unprecedented sensitivity in label-free imaging of living cells and organisms is the focus of a free webcast that will air Tuesday, June 15. A pioneer in single-molecule live-cell research, Xiaoliang "Sunney" Xie, Mallinckrodt Professor of Chemistry at Harvard University, will discuss the new capabilities provided by recent advances in stimulated Raman scattering microscopy and stimulated emission microscopy.

A pioneer in single-molecule live-cell research, Xiaoliang "Sunney" Xie, Mallinckrodt Professor of Chemistry at Harvard University, will discuss the new capabilities provided by recent advances in stimulated Raman scattering microscopy and stimulated emission microscopy. The techniques offer new possibilities for biology and medicine; Professor Xie will discuss both the technology advances and their impact.

Sponsored by BioOptics World, this hour-long, interactive webcast will present the latest research and allow the webcast audience to ask questions of the renowned biochemist, who developed coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy. Those wishing to participate should register now and plan to tune in at 1:00 Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, June 15. Participating is easy via a web link. Attendees will have the chance to hear firsthand from Professor Xie, and find out how these new developments can affect life sciences research and medical applications.

Professor Xie was chosen as one of nine winners of the inaugural NIH Director’s Pioneer Award in 2004. In 2006, Xie’s group at Harvard University was the first to record real-time movies of protein production one molecule at a time in bacteria, a breakthrough that enabled quantitative description of gene expression. He continues to pursue exploratory work with the potential of high return—and the inevitable high risk.
