Research Tech Talk - MITI Core Facility

New Opportunities for Integrated Preclinical Imaging at the Multiphoton Intravital and Tissue Imaging (MITI) Core

Presented by Heather Jensen-Smith, PhD; Director of the MITI and Advanced Microscopy Cores

The MITI Core, part of the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center’s Preclinical Imaging Center, uses multiphoton excitation (MPE) to capture high-resolution (≥ 0.3um) in vivo and in vitro images. Compared to traditional confocal microscopy, MPE microscopy dramatically increases imaging depth while decreasing tissue damage. New equipment supporting a diverse array of imaging studies (neuroscience, cancer, biology, physiology, drug development, and preclinical) is available in the MITI Core.

Focal points for this Tech Talk Seminar include: 

  • Foundational concepts in MPE intravital imaging.
  • Descriptions of new (Neurotar Mobile Home Cage) and existing state-of-the-art imaging technologies in the MITI Research Core.
  • Overview of studies and opportunities to use imaging technologies available in the MITI Research Core.
  • Discussion of the trade-offs between imaging core technologies (imaging depth, spatial and temporal resolution) as well as new opportunities for integrating data across research imaging cores

About the Tech Talk Series, sponsored by the Vice Chancellor for Research Office:

This seminar series features research that uses UNMC core facility technologies in an effort to increase awareness of UNMC’s research resources. Speakers include core scientists, principal investigators, instrument tech reps, and occasionally outside researchers.  The purpose of the series is to highlight the variety of ways core technologies can be applied to research questions, with a special emphasis on technology new to UNMC.
