Episode 10 – Microscopy in neuroscience with Dr Tobi Langenhan, Leipzig University & Dr Abdullah Ahmed, Leica Microsystems
Listen along as experts explore some applications of microscopy in neuroscience and discuss common challenges and considerations.
In this episode of Drug Target Review’s podcast, sponsored by Leica Microsystems, Dr Tobi Langenhan, Professor of Biochemistry at the Universität Leipzig, Germany, discusses microscopy in the context of neuroscientific research in conversation with Dr Abdullah Ahmed, Advanced Workflow Specialist at Leica Microsystems.
Listen to this podcast to discover how microscopy can be used to understand the molecular basis of mechanoceptive and synaptic pathways, and the importance of understanding protein dynamics and their spatial interactions. You’ll also hear about common microscopy challenges and some of the technologies that can help to overcome these, plus much more!
Key learning points:
- Why microscopy is such an important tool in neuroscientific research
- The advantages of microscopy over other techniques
- How to overcome common challenges encountered in microscopy
- How microscopy is applied in the Langenhan lab to investigate synaptic protein assemblies and study the mechanoceptive properties of adhesion-type GPCRs.
