LS1.7 / LS2.8: in vivo imaging of multicellular dynamics and complexity
Session co-organisers: Theresa Ward, Yosef Gruenbaum, Nick Read
In vivo imaging is an exciting and emerging subject within various aspects of cell biology, developmental biology and pathology.  A range of new and old techniques is able to capture the 3D organization, dynamics and multicellular complexity of living organisms. This session aims to highlight both technical developments in this field and novel biological applications in diverse areas of in vivo imaging. Contributions to the sessions on in vivo imaging are solicited from any area of research on humans or model systems, where in vivo imaging techniques are being applied to analyse their biology at the multicellular level.
