3D optical clearing, staining and imaging (CUBIC)

Organ or organism-level systems biology aims to identify and analyze cellular circuits in 3D. Tissue opacity however often prevents optical imaging of thick tissue samples (>>100’s of micrometers). A solutions to this problem is development of whole-organ or whole-organism tissue-clearing. In this talk I will review our advancements of our optical clearing approach CUBIC and its applications. Etsuo […]

Swedish FTD Initiative Symposium

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder characterised by a large variety of genetic associations, underlying pathologies and clinical symptoms. As of today, there are no treatments available that have preventative and/or curative effects on the disease. Swedish FTD Initiative is a multidisciplinary consortium created in 2017 by the support of The Schörling Foundation, […]
