Presentation will begin: Tuesday, October 26, 2021 - 8:00 AM EDT
Presented by: Kevin Tsia, University of Hong Kong
Tsia covers the latest technologies that could allow researchers to reprioritize imaging speed and throughput in advanced optical microscopy, which is especially used for capturing fast dynamic biological processes and large-scale interrogation of cells, tissues, or even organisms.
About the presenter
Kevin Tsia, Ph.D., received his doctorate degree in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2009. He is currently a professor in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the program director of the Biomedical Engineering Program at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). His research interests cover a broad range of subject matters, including ultrafast optical imaging for imaging flow cytometry and cell-based assay high-speed in vivo brain imaging computational approaches for single-cell analysis. He is currently the Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) Research Fellow (2020). He received the Early Career Award 2012-2013 by RGC in Hong Kong, as well as the Outstanding Young Researcher Award 2015 at HKU, and the 14th Chinese Science and Technology Award for Young Scientists in 2016. Tsia holds four granted and four pending U.S. patents on ultrafast optical imaging technologies. He is co-founder of a startup company commercializing high-speed microscopy technology for cancer screening and treatment monitoring applications.
