Basic Science Symposium—New Approaches for High Resolution Imaging: From Proteins to Cells to Tissue

November 18, 2016 | 12:45 PM - 01:45 PM

Location: Prairie Room (Hyatt Regency McCormick Place)

Session Description

Recent advances in imaging techniques have revolutionized our understanding of the structure and architecture of molecules, molecular complexes, cells, and tissues. This symposium presents two very different approaches to state-of-the-art imaging. The first focuses on resolving the structure of single molecules; the second involves ultrastructural analysis of tissue.

Honorary Moderator: James A. Schafer, PhD

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. explain the theory behind cryo-electron microscopy and its use to define the structure of single molecules in membranes; and 2. discuss new scanning electron microscopy methods to visualize and analyze kidney cell and tissue architecture in 2-D and in 3-D.

Session Acknowledgements

In celebration of its 50th anniversary, ASN thanks former ASN Councilor James A. Schafer, PhD.
