The Plenary Speaker, Professor Scott E. Fraser of the University of Southern California, will open elmi2018 on the evening of Monday 4 June following the Core Facilities satellite meeting earlier in the day. Professor Fraser is an expert in quantitative biology, applying the tools of chemistry, engineering, and physics to problems in biology and medicine. His personal research centres on imaging and molecular analyses of intact biological systems, with an emphasis on early development, organogenesis, and medical diagnostics. He currently uses a range of technologies in his work from conventional light microscopy and laser scanning microscopy, to optical coherence tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) microscopy.



Other invited speakers will be announced online as they are confirmed. An exhibition and workshops will run alongside the conference showcasing the latest in products and applications. Bookings for space can be made online. For further details visit
