Day Two of the RICC will be on October 7th and will consist of two special sessions on Biomedical Imaging Research and Technology. The morning session will be devoted to presentations associated with stem cells. The afternoon session will focus on multi-spectral cellular imaging.

Morning Session - Stem Cell Imaging

  • General Overview of Embryonic Stem Cells
  •  Imaging Embryonic Stem Cells with the Keck 3D Fusion Microscope - The only microscope of its type in the world, The Keck 3D Fusion Microscope was developed by CenSSIS and allows the imaging of samples with at least 5 different modalities (DIC, CRM, LSCM, TPLSM, and QTM) on the same stage.
  • Biomedical Frontiers Enabled by Disease-Specific Human Embryonic Stem Cells presented by Gerald Schatten, who has received attention for his breakthrough work in cloning.

Afternoon Session -Multi-Spectral Cellular Imaging

  • Cellular Imaging: Nonintrusive Diagnoses of Breasts Angiogenesis Effects
  • Toward Objective Histo-Pathology: Infrared and Raman Spectral Imaging of Human Cells and Tissue (Optical Diagnosis)
  • Monitoring of Angiogenesis by the Method of Optical Pharmacokinetics
