Applications of Raman Spectroscopy in Immunology

In one part I will talk about how we have used Raman spectroscopy to study several aspects of malaria infection. Using single point Raman spectroscopy we have been able to identify the presence of malaria infection in blood and plasma, and using Raman imaging we have been able to study the changes within immune cells after exposure to hemozoin (a byproduct of malaria infection). In the other part I will talk about how Raman spectroscopy can be used to study RNA structure and show some examples from important RNA regulatory elements found within untranslated regions of genes.
