Presentation will begin: Thursday, October 28, 2021 - 11:00 AM EDT
Presented by: Daniel Razansky, University of Zürich and ETH Zürich
Neuroscience has a fundamental need for more efficient and less intrusive ways to observe activity of large distributed neuronal populations and related vascular changes at multiple spatial and temporal scales. The talk thus focuses on latest additions to the arsenal of multi-scale neuroimaging techniques from Daniel Razanky's research group. Techniques covered include whole-brain functional optoacoustic neuro-tomography, large-field multifocal illumination microscopy and diffuse optical localization imaging.
About the presenter
Daniel Razansky, Ph.D., is Chair of Biomedical Imaging and holds dual appointments at the University of Zurich Faculty of Medicine and ETH Zurich Department of Information Technologies and Electrical Engineering. He also serves as Director of the joint Preclinical Imaging Center at ETH Zurich. Razansky earned degrees in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology and conducted postdoctoral research at Harvard Medical School. Previously, he was Professor of Molecular Imaging Engineering at the Technical University of Munich and Helmholtz Center Munich in Germany. The Razansky Lab pioneered a number of functional and molecular imaging technologies that were successfully commercialized and put into use in many research labs and clinical facilities across the globe, among them the multi-spectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT) and hybrid optoacoustic ultrasound (OPUS). His research has been recognized by the German Innovation Prize and multiple awards from the ERC, NIH, SNF, DFG and HFSP. He is an elected Fellow of the Optical Society of America and SPIE, the International Society of Optics and Photonics.
