Scottish Microscopy Group – Annual Meeting Glasgow

Oct 18 2017 Read 280 Times

The Scottish Microscopy Group will hold its annual meeting, the 45th symposium, on Wednesday November 22nd at the Beatson Institute at the Garscube Campus in Glasgow. The theme this year is “Resolution”.

There will be talks by experts in their respective fields working at the limits of resolution in a range of techniques ranging from acoustic imaging, flow cytometry with microscopy, through to super-resolution imaging and electron microscopy. With the recent announcement of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the development of cryo-EM we are proud to have several speakers on this topic in the line-up.

As always there is room for talks from submitted abstracts and poster presentations. As part of the meeting, three microscope facilities in Glasgow will be featured in short presentations. Workshops on high-resolution LM imaging and OMERO will be held during an extended lunch break and there is a trade show and an imaging competition.

Keynote speakers are Ricardo Henriques, UCL, London and Gaia Pigino, MPI, Dresden. Other speakers include: Sandy Cochran, Glasgow; Fabio Nudelman, Edinburgh; Katie Hughes, Glasgow; Mhairi Towler, Dundee; David Bhella, Glasgow; Ian MacLaren, Glasgow; Leo Carlin, Glasgow

Facilities: Beatson Microscopy Facility, Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre, National CryoEM Facility.
