Confocal Microscopy for 3D Approach to Parasitology Research: Prof. Renato Arruda Mortara

21 October 2013

Hear about the importance of Parasitology research in Brazil, and how confocal microscopy enables a 3d ‘cell biology’ approach to investigate endemic parasites in cells. Prof. Renato Arruda Mortara, Federal University of Sao Paulo, describes how this field has emerged and how microscopy techniques are enabling long-term experiments to determine the parasitic behaviour of Trypanosoma cruzi, Leishmania spp, Coxiella burnetii, and others. Prof. Mortara also discusses the future of super-resolution microscopy. SelectScience Interview for ‘Science in Brazil’ Special Feature.
