Webinar: Super-resolution infrared imaging of polymorphic amyloid aggregates directly in neurons

Groot-Ammers | March 23rd, 2020

Coming Thursday, March 26th,  11:00 AM – 12:00 PM CET, Dr. Oxana Klementieva (Assistant Professor in Neurobiology, Lund University and Dr. Mustafa Kansiz (Director of Product Management, Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp.) will host the webinar titled ‘Amyloid aggregates in neurons – Life Science applications with submicron simultaneous IR+Raman microscopy’.

Dr. Oxana Klementieva and co-workers identifying amyloid-beta aggregates directly in neurons (neurites an dendritic spines) at the subcellular (submicron) level using Optical Photothermal Infrared (O-PTIR) imaging (mIRage submicron Infrared Microscope).

They provided a glimpse of what might occur at earlier stages of Alzheimer’s Disease pathology showing that in neurons, amyloid aggregates can have structural polymorphism, which may trigger various mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease progression.

The webinar will be recorded for later on-demand viewing with opportunities to ask questions during and after the webinar.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
