The Facility for Imaging by Light Microscopy welcomes Dr Pilhan Kim, Associate Professor at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Daejeon, Korea and CEO, IVIM Technology, Inc., Daejeon, Korea.
In this talk, IVIM Technology’s All-in-One real-time intravital two-photon and confocal microscopy system will be introduced. The imaging system has been extensively optimized for in vivo cellular-level imaging of internal organs in a live animal model for various human diseases. It can acquire real-time multi-color sub-micron resolution microscopic images in a live animal model with automatic motion compensation, enabling direct imaging analysis of complex cancer immune-microenvironment consisting of various immune cells, stromal cells, vascular cells, and extracellular matrix.
Pilhan Kim received his bachelor’s and PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University (Korea) in 2000 and 2005, respectively. From 2005 to 2010, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School (Boston, USA) with a cross-disciplinary postdoctoral fellowship from Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP). In 2010, he joined the Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) where he is currently a tenured Associate Professor at the School of Nanoscience and Technology. His research focuses on cellular visualization of various preclinical models to investigate complex pathophysiology of human disease, leading to the development of advanced in vivo cellular imaging technologies based on ultrafast laser-scanning microscopy systems.
