Abstract

The holy grail of infection biology is to study a pathogen within its natural infectious environment, the living host. Advances in in vivo imaging techniques have begun to introduce the possibility to visualize, in real time, infection progression within a living model. In this review we detail the current advancements and knowledge in multiphoton microscopy and how it can be related to the field of microbial infections. This technology is a new and very valuable tool for in vivo imaging, and using this technique it is possible to begin to study various microbes within their natural infectious environment - the living host.
