Frontiers in BioImaging

HOME MEETINGS Associated Meetings Frontiers in BioImaging

03 - 06 July 2017, Manchester, UK

This meeting will be the fifth in the successful Frontiers in BioImaging series and will be held during mmc2017.

Focusing on the latest biological applications and optical imaging developments, it brings together technology developers, application specialists and end users to share their work and future vision. The aim of the meeting is to create a network of multidisciplinary scientists focused on aspects of advanced imaging and its application.

With a mix of leading research leaders, their postdoctoral, PhD and technical staff, this is an ideal event for researchers to engage with a broad range of image approaches and to make useful contacts with key groups using similar technologies. We hope that this will lead to many future collaborations and ensure that recent funding awards are well promoted and benefits maximised.

The Frontiers in BioImaging Sessions will take place throughout the three days and are as follows:

Bespoke light microscopy for molecular level imaging

Session Chair: Mark Leake, York University, UK

Co-Chair: Philipp Kukura, Oxford University, UK

Invited Speaker: Seamus Holden, Newcastle University, UK

Advances in labelling for super-resolution microscopy

Session Chair: Michelle Peckham, King’s College London, UK

Co-Chair: Ilaria Testa, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, UK

Invited Speaker: Olivier Rossier, University of Bordeaux, France

Advanced light imaging for addressing longer length scale biological questions

Session Chair: Susan Cox, King’s College London, UK

Co-Chair: Steven Lee, University of Cambridge, UK

Invited Speaker: Jae-Byum Chang, MIT, USA

Developing super-resolution methods for functional insight

Session Chair: Jan Faix, Hannover Medical School, Germany

Helge Ewers, Freie University, Germany

Christina Flors, IMDEA Nanoscience Institute, Spain

These four Frontiers in BioImaging sessions will cover the latest developments in imaging approaches and their applications, from custom built microscopes, to new methods for labelling and super-resolution microscopy.

Abstract Submission has now closed.

To enable further networking and audience participation, there will be a dedicated poster session and Frontiers in BioImaging Conference Dinner on the evening of Tuesday 4 July.

After last year's widely appreciated and successful evening, this years dinner will again be at Bem Brasil Deansgate, a Brazilian restaurant in the centre of Manchester. If you would like to attend this dinner you can do this at the same time as completing your conference registration.

Previous events

mmc2017 is the latest in an impressive list of events dating back to the 1960s starting with the Micro conference and exhibition series. This later became MicroScience which grew ever-bigger until 2010. The RMS hosted the European Microscopy Congress in 2012 which was the catalyst for the current Microscience Microscopy Congress series.
