Preclinical Imaging of Internal Organs in Live Animal Models
Dr Kim, the pioneer of intravital microscopy will present his work on a real-time laser-scanning intravital confocal/two-photon microscopy system extensively optimised for in vivo cellular-level imaging of internal organs in live animal models for various human diseases.
Following an introduction to the technology, he will demonstrate how IVIM Technology’s intravital microscopy acquires real-time multi-color fluorescence microscopic images with sub-micron resolution. He will present several datasets derived from a wide variety of tissues and organs.

Dr. Pilhan Kim received B.S. and Ph. D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University (Korea) in 2000 and 2005, respectively. From 2005 to 2010, he worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital Boston, USA, with cross-disciplinary postdoctoral fellowship from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP).
In 2010, he joined Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) as a tenure-track faculty member. Currently he is Associate Professor of Graduate School of Nanoscience and Technology at KAIST.
His main research interest is the development of an advanced in vivo cellular imaging technology based on ultrafast laser-scanning intravital microscopy systems. He developed this imaging system for systemic cellular-level visualisation of various preclinical model organisms to investigate the complex pathophysiology of human disease.
