About this Research Topic
Imaging methods have made vast contributions to the cell biology knowledge base. Until recently, these data were obtained from static images from fixed tissues, thus lacking information of the impact of biological dynamics to processes such as cellular signaling, replication and defense, to name a few. Intravital Imaging, a rapidly emerging technique that permits the imaging of live animals at microscopic resolution, is enabling the spatio-temporal monitoring of cellular processes, under close to in vivo conditions.
This Research Topic welcomes contributions from practitioners of intravital imaging who are using this technique for a better understanding of a wide range of biological processes including signaling pathways, disease monitoring and treatment, protein-protein communication, cellular sensing, stem cell biology and the development of new intravital techniques and probes.
We therefore expect that this collection will be highly impactful and of interest to a wide community of researchers.
