On Friday July 16th at 13:00 CEST, Ori Avinoam of the Weizmann Institute kicks off the Correlated Imaging Series, a new online lecture series brought to you by COMULIS and Euro-BioImaging.
Correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) combines the strengths of light microscopy (LM) and electron microscopy (EM) to pin-point and visualize cellular or macromolecular structures. However, there are many different imaging modalities that can be combined in a CLEM workflow, creating a vast number of combinations that can overwhelm new-comers to the field. During this lecture, Ori Avinoam will offer a conceptual framework using examples from the study of membrane remodelling to help guide the decision-making process and identify scenarios when high-precision CLEM is the best approach to address your research question.

About Ori Avinoam
Ori Avinoam was born in Haifa, Israel. He got his B.Sc. in Molecular Biochemistry from the Technion and his Ph.D. in Biology from the Technion in 2012, studying the mechanism by which membrane proteins mediate cell-to-cell fusion with Prof. Benjamin Podbilewicz. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, where he developed the means to visualize dynamic changes in membrane architecture by combining light and electron microscopy with John Briggs and Marko Kaksonen. He joined the department of Biomolecular Sciences at the Weizmann Institute of Science in January 2017.
