Beating Heart

Start date: 01 Sep 2014, End date: 31 Aug 2016,

Intravital microscopy (IVM) methods are enjoying an ever broader acceptance as they can be used to gain insight into cell biology in vivo. Unfortunately, most set-ups use window chambers (e.g. cancer) or isolated organs, all highly artificial model systems which are often not compatible with survival imaging. Because of these caveats, imaging in orthotopic locations is always preferable and can th ...
