Current biomedical research is driven by the need to understand the mechanisms
underlying the structural and functional organization of living biological model
systems. Either of these properties is supported by dynamic molecular
interaction networks that are often transiently established and localize to
specific sub-compartments within cells&s_comma; tissues or organisms. Such interactions
take place on highly diverse time scales (typically ranging from sub-millisecond
to days). Because of their ability to convey highly specific information on the
molecular constituents of these systems&s_comma; high resolution fluorescence
technologies - in particular confocal- and multiphoton laser scanning microscopy
- have become standard tools for their investigation. Various instrument
properties need to be individually optimized in order to meet the specific
demands of imaging living samples differing from each other with respect their
requirements (e.g. spatial resolution&s_comma; temporal resolution&s_comma; time scales and
rates of image acquisition). The talk will focus on new microscope solutions
that address these demands&s_comma; will cover their architectures and principles of
operation and will demonstrate their usability in various applications.
