Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscopy: a 3-D Window Into Cell Biology At The Nanoscale
Kedar Narayan, Presenter
Connecting the Dots: How Shape Based Modeling Segmentation (SBMS) Will Disrupt Biomedical Research & Diagnostics
Dr. Serge Rousselle, Presenter
Extracting Information From Images: More Than a Pretty Picture
Dr. Yanling Liu, Presenter


Kedar Narayan is the group leader for cellular imaging at the Frederick National Laboratory’s Center for Molecular Microscopy. He earned a Ph.D. in immunology, and has a research background in chemistry, pathology, and biophysics. Kedar’s work focuses on the use of emerging technologies for subcellular imaging. At CMM, he is responsible for FIB-SEM technology development and for driving collaborative projects that use FIB-SEM, electron tomography and correlative imaging approaches to explore cellular mechanisms.

Dr Serge Rousselle, DVM, DACVP, Principal Pathologist, Partner: Dr Rousselle has extensive experience (20+ years) in drug safety assessment gained while employed with or consulting for the pharmaceutical industry (Pfizer) and employed in contract research organizations (CIT, PAI, Charles River, HSRL, Alizée Pathology). Dr Rousselle current area of focus and expertise is in evaluation and oversight of medical device studies. Alizée Pathology routinely prepares customized processes, immunohistochemistry protocols and special stains for device studies and evaluation of animal models of human diseases, using frozen and fixed tissue, including paraffin and plastic embedded tissue. Dr. Rousselle is an active member of ACVP and STP and has co-authored 35 journal articles and many abstracts presented at international conventions.

Dr. Yanling Liu received his PhD degree in Computer Science from the George Mason University. Dr. Yanling Liu leads the Imaging and Visualization Group at the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research to develop scientific software, workflow, and algorithms to derive quantitative information from biomedical images. His research interests include 3D biomedical visualization, image segmentation, image registration, machine learning and deep learning.
