“The congress has been designed to attract experts working in all areas of microscopy, including optical and electron microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, 3D imaging, Cryo-EM and CLEM. It will examine the latest developments in the technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research in areas such as diagnostic microscopy, oncology, neuroscience, pathology, and developmental biology. The challenges of image analysis will also be examined in a session on handling big data derived from microscopes.

With the significant breakthrough in resolution capabilities brought about by the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winners, this is an exciting time to be working in microscopy. Not only is it one of the most fundamental techniques used by biologists, microscopy is also facilitating crucial advances in healthcare and drug discovery, allowing scientists to observe the micro world in ever increasing detail.

Should you be an expert in developing microscopical technologies, or a scientist using microscopy to further medical research, the conference will provide an interactive networking forum to answer your queries through a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions, networking breaks allowing interaction with your peers, expert led case study presentations, and interactive Q&A panel discussions examining key issues over two days in areas of instrumentation and technology in microscopy, as well as real life case studies and applications in medical research.”
