Special thanks to our faculty (Chung, Epp, and
Vaughan), UBC organizing committee, and vendor
LifeCanvas Jeff Stirman for a successful course.
For videos of the talks
click here. What an amazing course, we taught nearly
60 people something about these emerging methods in both
a hands-on and lecture format. The highlight for me was
the golfball sized cleared mouse brain Kwanghun Chung
expanded in his hotel room using Vancouver tap water!
Hands-on workshop on Brain Clearing and Expansion
with Kwanghun Chung from MIT (developer of
CLARITY), Joshua Vaughan from University of Washington,
and Jonathan Epp from Toronto/Calgary on July 12th
2017 in the UBC Koerner Pavilion (Brain Research Centre
and NINC, Koerner Pavilion 1st floor). They will
present these emerging methods and there will be a
hands-on component using material prepared in a "cooking
show" fashion (partially cleared to save same time).
Cleared brain data analysis and
microscopy will be addressed by scientists and several
leading vendors LifeCanvas.
