Zebrafish Imaging with Quantitative Analysis


Meeting Description:
Zebrafish are a powerful vertebrate model for many avenues of biological research, including developmental biology and pathology.  Due to their small size and optical clarity, they are uniquely amenable to imaging studies.  In this webinar we will describe how automated digital microscopy and quantitative image analysis can be applied to zebrafish research focusing on three common areas of study including angiogenesis, toxicology and cell death.

Sarah Beckman is a Principal Scientist at BioTek Instruments, Inc. She holds a PhD in Cellular and Molecular Pathology from the University of Pittsburgh. Sarah’s graduate school work utilized microscopy and image analysis to better understand methods to optimize stem cells for cardiac and skeletal muscle regeneration. As part of her postdoc at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical center Sarah performed live imaging with zebrafish in order to study macrophage migration during development. Current projects in the lab focus on object based spot counting analysis and zebrafish imaging.
