Webcast  Description:

Exciting developments in tissue clearing, and tools that support it, are helping to advance neuroscience and hold promise for other applications. In this webcast, Raju Tomer of Columbia University will explain tissue clearing: how it works, how researchers use it, and how it benefits discovery. Further, he will describe tools that are furthering the growth of this technique, including light sheet microscopy approaches specifically designed to leverage tissue clearing; and the need for analysis approaches to process massive volumetric datasets.

Presented by:

Raju Tomer, PhD
Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences
Columbia University

Raju Tomer PhD is Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at Columbia University, where his focus is development and application of molecular, optical and data analytic methods for multi-scale understanding of complex biological systems. Before joining Columbia, Dr. Tomer spent 5 years at Stanford as a Staff Scientist and HHMI Research Specialist, completing a post-doctoral program in Karl Deisseroth’s Lab where he was involved in the development of light-sheet microscopy systems designed for cleared tissue imaging. He earned his PhD at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Europe’s flagship laboratory for basic research in molecular biology, and his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in biochemical engineering and biotechnology at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi.
