RMS congratulates Prize-Winners at UK Imaging Events

Aug 17 2022

A busy start to July saw the Royal microscopical Society’s AFM & SPM Meeting 2022 and Frontiers in Bioimaging 2022 both taking place in the same week, with the RMS congratulating the prize winners at each event. Bioimaging 2022 represented the Society’s first in-person only conference since the onset of Covid with delegates eagerly descending on the Edgbaston Park Hotel, Birmingham, UK.

Akaash Kumar, of MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, received the prize for the best talk - ‘Multispectral live cell imaging with uncompromised temporal resolution’-  while Mollie McFarlane of the University of Strathclyde, was awarded the poster prize for ‘Enhanced fluorescence from semi-conductor quantum dots excited at 280nm’.

Meanwhile the AFM & SPM Meeting 2022 was held over three days as a hybrid event, with attendees given the option of attending DayTwo in person at Sheffield University.

Submitted posters were displayed virtually and voted on throughout the meeting, with the winners announced at the end of the event.First prize went to Libby Holmes, for her poster titled ‘Using high resolution Atomic Force Microscopy to explicitly determine DNA topology’.

Joint-second prize-winners were Harriet Read of the Universiy of Manchester, whose poster was titled ‘Effect of hydrophobic surfaces on the morphological and thermodynamic properties of supported lipid membranes’; and Anna Scheeder of the University of Cambridge, with ‘Altering the bacteria surface mechanics with rigid DNA self-assemblies’.
