Training in the use of Cellvizio system

Study of cerebral vascular network by endomicroscopy in vivo

Le 12 avril 2017

13-14 juin 2017 

A “Theoretical and Practical training in the use of Cellvizio system: study of the cerebral vascular network by endomicroscopy in vivo in anaesthetized rodents” will be held in Bordeaux, France on June 13-14, 2017.

Deadline registration : April 23, 2017

This course will address the theoretical and practical aspects of studying the cerebrovascular network in vivo. This training may be of major interest to neuroscientists, neurologists and cardiovascular specialists. It will focus on visualization and measurement in real-time of the vascular reactivity and permeability of the blood-brain barrier in rodent models. The proposed method will be the endomicroscopy in vivo using Cellvizio technology developed by MaunaKea Technologies.

The training will focus on the cerebral vascular network, but the applications of this technology are multiple since it is based on tracking fluorescent signals and allows their longitudinal tracking. Thus, it can concern the peripheral circulation, but also the measurement of neuronal activity, including in vigil animals.

This 2 days (14 hours) workshop will cover:

Online registration :

 * Theoretical courses on endomicroscopy in vivo: principles, applications and potentials in the context of neurosciences and cardiovascular research

* Hands on courses will include:

  • Surgical implantation of fiber guides (Certification in experimental surgery required for this course)
  • Measurement of the blood-brain barrier effectiveness by endomicroscopy in vivo in real time
  • Measurement of pial arteries vasoreactivity by endomicroscopy in vivo in real time
  • Results analysis and discussion

Selection: Due to space limitation, only 6 participants will be enrolled in the course.

Attendees: Postdoctoral students and researchers with knowledge in fluorescence principles, microscopy, cerebral vascular network and clinical and ethical concepts.
