Some counterintuitive lessons learned from the OSA BIOMED meeting

With the conclusion of another BIOMED meeting, I once again left Miami impressed by the many excellent talks, clever imaging solutions, and novel biological insights.  I’ve appreciated the opportunity to share my thoughts about the conference through this blog, and in conclusion, I thought I would highlight three things that I was rather surprised to learn.

Seeing the blood flow that helps us see

The quality of the posters at the the OSA biomedical optics conference this year has been exceptionally high and over the last three days I came across a number of projects that warranted highlighting in the blog. Some of these include the work of Jessica Kishimoto and Prof. Keith St. Lawrence at Western University on the application of diffuse correlation spectroscopy and ultrasound imaging to...

Pushing the limits of imaging resolution and penetration depth

The development of labeling techniques capable of providing customizable molecular specificity has made optical microscopy a fundamental technique in the biomedical research, and the standard compound microscope remains a fixture in just about any clinic or biomedical lab. The popularity of optical microscopy was also driven by the ability to provide resolution at the cellular level that...
