Upcoming QB3 Imaging Symposia

"Innovations in Light Microscopy"
UCSF QB3 Nikon Imaging Symposium

Saturday, September 30, 2006 - 8:45 am - 6:30 pm
Byers Auditorium, Genentech Hall, UCSF Mission Bay Campus

This symposium celebrates recent advances in light microscopy. Investigators at this symposium use advanced light microscopy to tackle the complex subcellular dynamics that are at the heart of several fundamental questions in cell biology. Biological areas of emphasis include cell migration, cell division, and cell signaling. Technical innovations include surpassing the resolution limit of light microscopy, using high-throughput microscopy to bring microscopy into the age of genomics, combining advances in engineering with light microscopy, advances in automated image processing, and the latest in total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy. Also join us in celebrating the opening of the Nikon Imaging Center for advanced light microscopy at UCSF.

Attendance is free for academia. Register online at www.qb3.org before Tuesday, September 26.

Cancer Imaging: Promises to Keep
QB3 /UCSF Cancer Imaging Symposium

Saturday, October 14, 2006 8:45 am - 6:30 pm
Byers Auditorium, Genentech Hall, UCSF Mission Bay Campus

This symposium will feature state of the art imaging for staging cancer and detecting recurrent disease. Recognizing the limitations in sensitivity and specificity of current technology, exciting, new approaches in various stages of development will be presented. These technologies will cover the spectrum from clinical trials, pre-clinical mouse models, to development of new imaging agents. Symposium discussants represent leaders in basic and applied chemistry, physics and bioengineering research. It is expected that these advances will also result in the ability to determine the potential of tumors to spread as well as provide in real time responsiveness of tumors to targeted cancer therapies.

Attendance is free for academia. Registration is available on www.qb3.org.
