The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Dr. Luke Lavis, HHMI-Janelia: "Designing Brighter Dyes for Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy"
Key Lecture Points
· Fluorophore dye chemistry is rooted in the 1800s
· Modern chemistry enables synthesis of new dyes
· Azetidine substituents make dyes brighter, more photostable, and allows fine-tuning of properties
