Tissue Clearing Workshop

July 17-20 2017

Institute for Stroke and Dementia Research (ISD)
Feodor-Lynen-Str. 17, 81377 Munich

I would like to invite you to our upcoming tissue clearing workshop in Munich. In this workshop, we will cover various topics in tissue clearing by hands-on training from optimization of clearing for the tissue of interest, light-sheet microscopy imaging to 3D visualization and quantification. We will show how to immunolabel and clear whole organs (e.g., adult mouse/rat brains) and organisms (whole mouse). This is also an opportunity for groups to try their first clearing experiments on their samples with the experts here.

Our keynote speaker during the workshop will be Alain Chedotal (Inserm, Paris), whose lab just published a whole human embryo antibody labelling and mapping work using 3DISCO/iDISCO (Bella et al., 2017 Cell, http://www.cell.com/fulltext/S0092-8674(17)30287-8).
