Midterm presentation

Irene Spera, student of the PhD program Cutting Edge Microscopy (CEM), will give her midterm presentation on March 9, 2022 at 11:00 online via zoom. Title: "Factors regulating the exchange of cerebrospinal fluid and interstitial fluid of the brain".

Our project investigates the perineural outflow pathways of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at the cribriform plate and focused on the elucidation of anatomical connections between the subarachnoid space (SAS) and the lymphatics at the exiting nerve routes. Furthermore, we want to define the anatomical spaces of the CSF flow on the brain surface and elucidate the relationship between CSF and the interstitial fluid (ISF) of the brain. To address these aims, we made use of transgenic reporter mice, fluorescence microscopy, and through skull near-infrared (NIR) in vivo imaging.
