In Vivo Molecular Imaging Applications in Gene Editing and Neuro-inflammation

Introduction

  • Accurately understanding disease pathologies and therapeutic efficacy using non-invasive in vivo methods can present technical challenges. Molecular imaging is an established research tool that addresses these challenges in emerging applications including neuro-inflammation and gene-editing. Watch our webinar presented by Jasna Kriz, Ph.D., MD, from Université Laval and Tara Moore, Ph.D. from Ulster University on how molecular imaging was used to overcome challenges in neuro-inflammation and ocular gene-editing research. Dr. Kriz discusses how transgenic animals expressing luciferase can be used as an ideal tool for understanding ocular pathologies and treatment outcomes. Dr. Moore's presentation is devoted to understanding the pathology of brain injuries and chronic neurological disorders using 2D/3D imaging tools.
