Mini Symposium: Professor Tom Kirchhausen from Harvard

We are very excited to host a mini symposium on the occasion of the visit of Tom Kirchhausen from Harvard University in our department.

The symposium will be centered around live fluorescence microscopy for cell signaling and communication. It will involve latest insight on COVID19 cell entry pathways by Tom and then on permeation of blood brain and epithelia barrier for nanoparticles delivery, signaling in cells and lastly, how machine learning on single particle imaging can decipher cell entry pathways. 

Time: 25 November 2021, 9:00-12:15

Place: A2-11.01 Bülowsvej 21 (Frederiksberg campus, new plant science building ground
