    Location: Goldenson Building – Room 122 - 220 Longwood Avenue - Boston, MA 02115 - HMS

    High Content Imaging & Analysis: Applications in Basic and Translational Researc

    With the introduction of automated microscopy and image analysis, the field of High Content Analysis (HCA)  has enhanced the throughput and productivity of cell biology research. HCA is becoming a mainstream technology used for scaling image-based approaches to studying phenomenon on a cellular level. Dr. Justin Boyd, PhD, will present several applications of HCA, and discuss its strengths and weaknesses with respect to both basic and more applied research, with emphasis on the nervous system.
