Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (Paperback)
About the Author
Emmanuel Reynaud has been Stokes Lecturer in Biology at University College Dublin, Ireland, since 2009. He received his Master's degree in molecular biology from the Victor Segalen University of Bordeaux, and his doctorate in biology from the University Paris XI-Orsay, France. In 2002, he received an EMBO Long Term Fellowship and moved to the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg, Germany, where he developed new methods in cell biology including laser nanosurgery approaches to study cytoskeleton dynamics as well as Golgi biogenesis. He was also involved in the development of the Light Sheet based Fluorescence Microscopy as a member of the Light Microscopy Group headed by Ernst H.K. Stelzer at EMBL. He has coordinated the Imaging Platform for the Tara Oceans Expedition and developed commercial applications with Carl Zeiss Microimaging, AURA Optik and ANDOR Ltd. Pavel Tomancak is Senior Permanent Research Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany. After studying Molecular Biology and Genetics at the Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, he did his PhD at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in the field of Drosophila developmental genetics. During his post-doctoral time at the University of California in Berkeley at the laboratory of Gerald M. Rubin, he established image-based genome-scale resources for patterns of gene expression in Drosophila embryos. His laboratory in Dresden continues to study patterns of gene expression during development by combining molecular, imaging and image analysis techniques. The group has lead a significant technological development aiming towards more complete quantitative description of gene expression patterns using light sheet microscopy.
