LMA 2020 Image Competition: Congratulations, Aria Ahmed-Cox!

Australian PhD student wins the 1st prize with entry depicting vesicle trafficking in brain cancer cells on MicroTime 200

The winners of the 2020 Light Microscopy Australia Image Competition have been announced. Over 100 beautiful entries competed for the top spots in the four categories Live Cell, Life Science, In Vivo, and Materials Science. Congratulations to all winners of this years fierce competition!

Among all of the winning entries, we’d like to highlight the submission “The Paths we Trace: Lifetime of Fluorescent Membranes in Cancer” by Aria Ahmed-Cox, a PhD Student at the Children’s Cancer Institute of the University of New South Wales. In her short video, she traced vesicle trafficking in brain cancer cells on a MicroTime 200 time-resolved fluorescence microscope using PicoQuant’s rapidFLIM approach.

With this entry, she won the 1st prize in the Live Cell category.

Congratulations!

Aria Ahmed-Cox’ work was conducted in collaboration with the Children’s Cancer Institute, Biomedical Imaging Facility, Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre, UNSW Sydney and the Faculty of Medicine, UNSW Sydney. She and her group thank the Cancer Institute NSW for their generous support and acknowledge funding from the NHMRC Program Grant (APP1091261) and ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology (CE140100036).

Eight months of PicoQuant webinars – looking back and forwards

In March 2020, PicoQuant kicked off an ongoing series of webinars. Time for a short look back and at what’s coming next.

The events that started in early 2020 made it very difficult for us at PicoQuant to meet up in person with our customers and community. As staying in touch with people is very dear to our hearts, we turned to the next best thing: holding online gatherings. And thus, after a few weeks of frantic planning and preparations, our ongoing webinar series was born in mid-March 2020.

It’s been quite a ride: So far we’ve held 21 webinars and welcomed over 2400 attendees in total. Our goal is to provide the scientific community with deeper insights into techniques, methods, and applications. We’d like to give a big “thank you” to all participants for joining us and for all the lovely discussions. If you missed a session or wish to experience it again, then check out our webinar on demand page.

Going forward, we will continue to hold more webinars covering a broad range of topics. The next one on “Using pulsed laser light in your research – new application stories featuring PicoQuant’s picosecond pulsed lasers will be held on December 2, 2020 by our laser product manager Guillaume Delpont. See you soon online!
