SMP 11/1/08 | Tricks with Light: How Microscopy Reveals the Biological World | Speaker: Jennifer Ogilvie
Saturday, November 1, 2008
170 & 182 Dennison Building
Speaker: Professor Jennifer Ogilvie (U-M Physics)From the first observation of cellular structures, light microscopy continues to shape our understanding of biology. This lecture will examine several important properties of how light interacts with matter, and explain how these interactions are exploited in the light microscope. Touching on several established microscopies, we'll also explore recent progress that is pushing the frontiers of spatial and chemical resolution, providing us with a richer view of the biological world.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
