In April 2020, the International Zebrafish Society (IZFS) launched the IZFS Webinar Series. The series includes a variety of research and professional development topics. The content of the webinars is designed for researchers from every career level and to share the latest scientific findings, methods, technologies, and products to facilitate research. The format provides direct access to experts in the field in an interactive online setting.
Webinar registration is free to all IZFS members. Non-members may participate in each webinar for a fee of $25.00 USD. To register for webinars, please click here. If you have never been a member and would like to join, please click here. If your membership has lapsed and you would like to renew to participate in the webinars, please click here.
“For my Ally is the Force”: Engineering Sensors for in vivo Imaging of Mechanosensation
Featuring - Periklis (Laki) Pantazis, PhD and Konstantinos Kalyviotis, PhD
Dan Gorelick, PhD, Jessica Plavicki, PhD and Ben Lovely, PhD
July 17, 2023
Cellular mechanosensation and mechanotransduction are inherent abilities of cells to perceive and respond to extrinsic and intrinsic mechanical stimuli. In this webinar, we will discuss engineering efforts aimed at developing biosensors for mechanical interrogation of biological systems. We will guide everyone through the insights gained from our research in developing a Piezo1 activity sensor called GenEPi (Genetically Encoded Piezo1 indicator), and we will also suggest future engineering approaches to visualize the unseen forces within cells.
