Talk by Professor Hiroki R. Ueda: "Whole-body/organ imaging with single-cell resolution toward organism-level systems biology"

Date: 16.08.2018 – 16.08.2018
Time: 11:00
Location: Mainz, Germany


Professor Hiroki R. Ueda 

Affiliation: Systems Pharmacology, Graduate School of Medicine, University of Tokyo

Laboratory for Synthetic Biology, Quantitative Biology Center, RIKEN

Time: Thursday, 16th August 2018, 11 am

Location: Conference room Helmholtz-Institut Mainz, Staudingerweg 18, 55128 Mainz

Title: Whole-body/organ imaging with single-cell resolution toward organism-level systems biology

Abstract:

State-of-the-art tissue clearing methods provide unprecedented, high-quality optical access to very large biological specimens from individual organs to entire intact animals. When combined with light-sheet microscopy and image informatics, currently available tissue-clearing methods including a hydrophilic tissue clearing method CUBIC, allows us to perform whole-brain and whole-body imaging with sub-cellular resolution. In addition, delipidation of biological specimens by tissue-clearing methods enables whole-organ staining with specific antibodies, which can be applied even to human biology and pathology. When combined with tissue clearing, these labelling methods allow us to systematically extract structural and functional information of complex mammalian organs. In this talk, I discuss how tissue-clearing and its related technologies have been successfully integrated to create new biological insights and provide a perspective for future opportunities in biology and medicine.

Workshop "My Project Management Skills"

28.05.2018

Date: 28.05.2018
Location: Institut für Lehrergesundheit (IfL), Seminar Room 01, Kupferbergterrasse 17 – 19, 55116 Mainz
Contact: sfb1193@uni-mainz.de


Workshop Content  

Organization, coordination and effective leadership have become a must for growing in one´s career, in Academia as well as in other sectors. Not only scientist’s day-to-day work, but also acquiring external funding requires accurate timing, financial structuring and planning of scientific work. When scholars have little awareness of these skills, this can hinder their attitude and confidence in achieving their goals. In this workshop we will raise your self-awareness, show you how to hone these project-management related skills and enable your potential for a successful career. 

Referent: Dr. Silke Oehrlein-Karpi

Target audience: Scientists of CRC 1193 

Maximum number of participants: 12

Workshop "Career Crafting"

12.04.2018 – 13.04.2018

Date: 12.04.2018 – 13.04.2018
Location: Institut für Lehrergesundheit (IfL), Seminar Room 01, Kupferbergterrasse 17 – 19, 55116 Mainz
Contact: sfb1193@uni-mainz.de


Workshop Content 

If your professional goal is a successful career - either inside or outside the world of academia- don´t leave the course of your career to chance. Instead adopt a forward-looking and pro-active approach to planning and designing your personal career path. An initial step in the development of your plan is to undertake an in-depth and true analysis of your personal skills, competencies, values and goals. A thorough, accurate assessment of your own potential will enable you to proceed on your path in a goal-oriented manner. This strategy will assist you in coherent and accurate decision-making and in the effective exploitation of your specific, individual potentials. In the course of the workshop, you can then use these findings in contemplating the best strategy for your own personal career development.
