Hard Cell – clinical application of cellular microbiology

Next Thursday, March 25th, there will be a talk on current and future applications of cell biology methods in clinical microbiology, with illustrations from recent infectious disease cases.  For those who can get there it will be in the Microbiology seminar room, 1st floor, L block, QEII Medical Centre, Nedlands, WA 6009 at 8am. Breakfast will be available beforehand.

This is a subject area close to the μgnome’s heart, and promises to be a significant departure from the same old, same old.

  • What can a flow cytometer, confocal microscope or motorised microscope stage do for your patients?
  • What might image-based reporting look like?
  • Where does this leave molecular diagnostics?

You can place bets on a guest appearance by the dancing amoebas and there may even be a few parasites to FRET about. All in all, an interactive session not to be missed.
