    Biography
      After completing doctoral studies at Macquarie University (Sydney, Australia) in cardiac physiology, Lynne undertook postdoctoral training at the University of California San Francisco (USA), the Baker Heart Research Institute (Melbourne) and Monash University (Melbourne). At Monash, Lynne began to use many different types of optical imaging to study how bacteria moved across surfaces and how they built communities called biofilms. Lynne moved to the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) in 2008 as a Research Fellow at the ithree institute. It was at UTS that her interest in super resolution microscopy really began and eventually lead to Lynne being the Super Resolution Specialist in the Microbial Imaging Facility.

      Lynne's research interests focused on microbial biofilms and the application of optical and super resolution imaging techniques to the study of microbial cell biology. She has over 40 published papers and 2 book chapters specifically using live cell, optical and super resolution microscopy. Lynne joined GE Healthcare as a Lead Application Support Specialist in late 2016.

    TIME: 8:00am PT, 11:00am ET

    Studying biological events while they happen is essential to truly understanding the full process behind each occurrence. Live cell imaging using fluorescence microscopy is the perfect approach to explore these complex questions. In this webinar, the use of automated fluorescence microscopy methods will be discussed, from small animal models and tissues to individual organelle and protein observations using high content analyzers. We will demonstrate how to capture high quality data while utilizing best methods for ensuring sample viability, including environmental control, sensitive signal detection, and precise instrument control. 


    Learning Objectives:

    • Advantages of using live samples for HCA
    • Importance of quantitative analysis 
    • Understand imaging system requirements for live cell observation
