Knight Campus Seminar Series with Elizabeth Hillman

Monday, August 19, 2019 at 10:00am to 11:00am

Erb Memorial Union (EMU), Diamond Lake Room
1395 University Street, Eugene, OR 97403

Join us for another seminar, part of the Knight Campus Seminar Series, with Elizabeth Hillman titled "New techniques for high-speed in-vivo imaging and microscopy". Elizabeth Hillman is a professor of biomedical engineering and radiology at Columbia University and a member of the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute and Kavli Institute for Brain Science at Columbia. Hillman received her undergraduate degree in physics and PhD in medical physics and bioengineering at University College London and completed post-doctoral training at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School.

Hillman has developed Swept Confocally Aligned Planar Excitation (SCAPE) to enable much higher speed 3D imaging of living samples. SCAPE uses scanned light sheet illumination in a novel single-objective configuration that requires no motion of the sample or objective providing speeds up to 300 volumes per second with minimal photobleaching. Another techniques Hillman has developed is wide-field optical mapping (WFOM) which enables real-time imaging of both neuronal and hemodynamic activity across the cortex of awake, behaving mice.
