High resolution live confocal imaging of immune cell behaviour in vivo during homeostasis and infection

In vivo imaging makes it possible to observe and study complex immunophysiological processes in the live animal as they happen. However, artefacts induced by anaesthesia, labelling and surgery, phototoxicity and a high degree of autofluorescence make in vivo imaging a challenging task. Based on experience using the intestine and the kidney as model systems the author will address some of the benefits and pitfalls of in vivo imaging using one-photon excitation laser scanning microscopy and present some of the possibilities this exciting technique has to offer.
