Have you ever wondered how cells move and act within an organism? Maybe you watched “The Magic School Bus” when you were a child and always wondered what it would be like to be on one of Ms Frizzle’s fieldtrips? Well now you can! We will bring you on board this “Magic School Bus” by exploring how cells move and behave in tissues like the skin, brain, bone marrow and muscle using a 2-photon microscope that does intravital live imaging. You will be able to have “X-ray” eyes for a day by visualizing an entire organ which is s done using a special technique called optical clearing; followed by illuminating the transparent organ using lasers from the light sheet microscope to study cell localisation within them. So what are you waiting for, come hop on-board the “Magic School Bus” with us!
