Live imaging of host-pathogen interactions - with Prof. Pontus Nordenfelt

Online Webinar 4th of May 2021, 10:30 CEST

Pathogenic bacteria are armed with many mechanisms to colonize and invade human cells. Live fluorescent microscopy is a great tool for studies of these interactions but comes with several limitations in order to achieve a quantitative understanding of the pathogenic processes. Prof. Pontus Nordenfelt will describe the work in his group where they are using the AI-based NIS.clarify module to enhance the analysis of host cell cytoskeletal dysregulation during host-pathogen interactions.

In the webinar we will discuss:

  • Studying host-pathogen interactions: the example of an imaging and analysis pipeline
  • Applying the NIS.clarify module to live wide-field microscopy images
  • Label-free imaging
  • Reduce the phototoxicity and photobleaching with low light conditions

We will also answer your questions at the live Q&A session.

About the speaker

Pontus Nordenfelt, an Associate Professor at the Infection Medicine (BMC), at Lund University in Lund, Sweden. He leads a research group, The Nordenfelt Lab, where they use unique biosensor technology in conjunction with advanced live imaging and image analysis techniques to study initial host-pathogen interactions.
