Fluorescence microscopy has been a critical tool in answering complex biological questions since its invention over 100 years ago. Modern fluorescence techniques and instrumentation continue to evolve enabling increasing advances in sensitivity, resolution, and speed allowing us to peer deeply into the dynamic processes of living cells and whole organisms. In this webinar, we will discuss the basics of fluorescence microscopy and give some useful guides into sample preparation, fluorescence labelling and state of the art fluorescence imaging techniques used by today's life science researchers

Dr. Kyall Pocock
Kyall has a background in Pharmaceutical Engineering which lead him to complete a PhD in Biomaterials Engineering and Nanomedicine at the University of South Australia in 2016. His research focused primarily on organ-on-a-chip devices for drug carrier evaluations, ultimately moving his research passion and experience towards high-end microscopy. Kyall has overseen the automated light microscopy portfolio for the past several years at ZEISS ANZ.
Dr. Mark Stafford
Mark Stafford has a background in Molecular Biology and Neuroscience and completed his PhD at the University of Queensland in 2007. With a research focus investigating the role of ion channel signalling in neural progenitor cell differentiation, his work involved a combination of pharmacology, cell culture, and Calcium imaging techniques. Mark has been with ZEISS ANZ for the past 13 years and manages our high-end light microscopy portfolio.
