Event details

Ion conductance microscopy applications over the last ten years are reviewed in this talk by Dr Andriy Shevchuk

Cells naturally operate at the nanoscale level, with molecules combining together to form complex molecular machines, which enable normal cell function or go wrong as in the case of many diseases. Visualizing these key processes in living cells is not trivial. Ion Conductance Microscopy is a noncontact method based on the use of a glass nanopipette that allows live cells to be imaged with the resolution of electron microscope and provides topographical and functional information.
