Remarks / more information:

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedSince the early 1970s Mark Ellisman is exploring and developing new microscopic techniques to unravel how molecules, cells and tissues work together to define life, with special interest in Neuroscience. His research promotes the development and application of advanced imaging technologies to obtain new information about cell structure and function, structural correlates of nerve impulse conduction and axonal transport, cellular interactions during nervous system regeneration, cellular mechanisms regulating transient changes in cytoplasmic calcium, and aging in the central nervous system. 

Mark Ellisman is visiting the Netherlands to educate how microscopy changes insight in several topics, and emphasize how these new tools may aid to break current barriers in your research.
