See the Hidden: Cancer Research

Online Workshop
Imperial College London Edition

Available On Demand

Leica Microsystems cordially invites you to enjoy a selection of on-demand presentations from their popular “See the Hidden” Workshop Series hosted by Microscopy Focus.

This 4th virtual edition, titled “See the Hidden: Cancer Research”, explored the next generation of methodologies, techniques, and workflows that are helping to accelerate cancer research—focusing on two exciting areas of microscopy—high-resolution optical imaging and artificial intelligence (AI)-powered image analysis.

In collaboration with Imperial College London (ICL) and the Imperial College Network of Excellence in Cancer Technology, this joint event showcased how a multidisciplinary research approach creates innovative new ideas for the detection, prevention, and ultimately the treatment of cancer.

Through a series of scientific talks, Dr. Vania Braga, Dr. Periklis Pantazis, and Professor Chris Bakal from ICL presented their cutting-edge research, and discussed how specialised microscopy techniques contributed to their findings. The program also included a closer look at the microscopy workflows used, with relevant product demonstrations performed in real-time.
