Project Description

We propose the establishment of an advanced In Vivo Imaging Facility (IVIF) for examining host-microbe
interactions and associated immunological processes within the context of the numerous infectious disease
models within the University of Melbourne and our associated collaborators. We aim to purchase a Zeiss
LSM 7MP 2-photon imaging system that will give us enhanced capacity to directly visualise cellular and
molecular events in real time, with greater sensitivity and in a broader range of tissues and organs. This will
provide the opportunity for novel insights into numerous immunological and host-microbe interactions.
