Research Fellow from the European Neuroscience Institute presents the latest advances in Nanoscopy at Fundación

June 25, 2010

Nanoscopic Microscopy, also known as Nanoscopy has allowed a significant progress in imaging of smaller structures of the body, such as the synaptic vesicles.

Dr. Felipe Opazo, research fellow of the European Neuroscience Institute (ENI) in Göttingen, Germany, visited Fundación Ciencia para la Vida as part of the “Chile invita a Chile” program, which aims to promote scientific collaborations between researchers of Fundación and Chielan fellow investigators that are currently working at renowned foreign research centers of excellence.

On that occasion Dr. Opazo presented the seminar “Limited Intermixing of Synaptic Vesicle Components Upon Vesicle Recycling”

Dr. Opazo completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Chile where he graduated in molecular biotechnology, and later obtained a PhD in neuroscience at the International Max Planck Neuroscience Research School in conjunction with Georg-August-University in Göttingen, Germany.
