BME Seminars - Joanne Xie


This week, the BME seminars "Open Your Mind" will host a conference of Joanne XIE from the ENS Cachan. Her talk will focus on: "Synthesis and application of fluorescent amino acids and sugars in optical imaging". 

The conference will take place on Friday 29th november at Centre Universitaire des Saints-Pères, 45 rue des Saints-Pères,  75006 Paris,  Bât Jacob, Salle des Thèses, from 13h30 to 15h00.

"Fluorescence microscopy is a powerful tool for the visualization of cellular proteins, to study protein-protein, or, protein-carbohydrate interactions. We developed a general method for the synthesis of amino acids, sugars and cyclodextrins incorporating different fluorophores.  These multifunctional molecules can be conjugated to peptides / proteins and used as biochemical tools, or, as selective probes in imaging. Moreover, some of the synthesized fluorescence probes can monitor selectively ions such as Cu2+, Hg2+, Ni2+,F-, or, CN-."
