Atomic Force Microscopy Webinar Series
Advancing AFM for Cell Biology: The Role of Forces in Cell Structure and Behavior
This month Bruker joins the journal CELL for an exclusive webinar event.
Presenter: Dr. Andrea Slade, Life Sciences Applications Scientist
Webinar Date & Time
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Cell biology has seen a surge in mechanobiology-related research directed towards understanding how cells exert and respond to forces. Examining the effects of forces on cells has a wide-range of applications from understanding disease pathology to the development of tissue engineering devices.
Presenter: Dr. Sanjay Kumar, University of California Berkeley, Associate Professor of Bioengineering
Atomic force microscopy (AFM) not only allows direct examination of the nanoscale structure of cell membrane surfaces, it also provides unique opportunities to measure the nanomechanical properties of live cells, map the spatial distribution of membrane receptors, as well as observe real-time changes in cells in direct response to applied forces. In this webinar, Dr. Andrea Slade, Bruker Nano Inc., will discuss the latest advances in Bruker’s AFM technology for cell biology research, including the integration of AFM with optical microscopy, nanomechanical property mapping imaging modes, as well as high-speed AFM imaging of cell dynamics.
