Presented by Yongfu Wang, Ph.D., Stowers Institute for Medical Research

Recently, expansion microscopy (ExM) has become a very popular and powerful tool for examining protein and RNA in cultures, biological tissue, and clinical specimens, allowing more detailed views of molecular structures using light microscopy. At the Stowers Institute for Medical Research, we have developed a protocol combining ExM with structured illumination microscopy (super resolution ExM, sExM). The focus of this webinar will be to discuss the principles and science of ExM, the strategy of sExM, applications, and troubleshooting.
