2019

April 14-18, 2019
Botanical Microscopy 2019
Oxford, England, UK

The 11th running of the International Botanical Meeting will in 2019 be held in the new lecture/conference facilities at Oxford Brookes University with accommodation in the famous Queen’s College, Oxford. As in recent meetings there will be 7 or 8 lead speakers and the rest of the programme will be chosen from offered talks. To attract postgraduate students to participate, a number of bursaries will be available alongside reduced registration fees. Topics will as ever be a mix of state-of-the art microscopy combined with the latest developments in plant cell biology, including organelle dynamics, nuclear structure and function, and autophagy. Planned associated activities will include a Zeiss/RMC sponsored workshop on 3-D imaging technologies, a trip round the museum of the History of Science (the world’s first public museum and home to the RMS microscope collection) and a tour of the famous Oxford Botanical Gardens. We welcome you all to the famous University City of Oxford.

NVIDIA Webinar: CryoEM for Drug Discovery

Cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM) is a Nobel Prize-winning technique for solving high-resolution three-dimensional structures of biological molecules such as proteins, that is used for structure-based drug design. Key to the success of cryoEM are significant advances in high performance computer vision and machine learning algorithms, used to extract information from large numbers of noisy 2D microscope images and compute and refine 3D structures of target proteins in near-native states. This webinar will focus on highlighting these computational challenges, their solutions and implementations in the powerful cryoSPARC™ software suite, and the application of cryoEM within the structure-based drug design pipeline at Merck.

June 10-14, 2019
GWNIC Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy Workshop
Washington, DC

The George Washington University (GW) Nanofabrication and Imaging Center (GWNIC) presents a five-day correlative microscopy workshop. The main theme of this workshop is correlating large-area images of the same sample created with both light and high-resolution electron microscopy. The workshop will be geared towards microscopists who are interested in learning new techniques for special projects or who are in the market for new instruments, particularly neuroscientists or anatomists who are interested in utilizing large area imaging in their research.

Microscience Microscopy Congress 2019
Manchester Central, UK

The Microscience Microscopy Congress 2019 is set to be as big and as bold as ever with 36 conference sessions, an exhibition with more than 90 companies represented, a brilliant selection of features such as pre-event workshops and turn-up-and-learn training opportunities and a busy social programme. The Microscience Microscopy Congress Series is organised by the Royal Microscopical Society, a UK-based Charity dedicated to furthering the science of microscopy through a wide range of activities. Also under the umbrella of mmc2019 is a wide range of popular meetings, allowing the conference to cater specifically for each interest group whilst allowing visitors to enjoy the wide range of benefits and opportunities on offer at the Congress.

Super-Resolution Workshop 2019
Leeds, UK

Designed to talk about the current challenges in developing and using super-resolution microscopy with lots of time for discussion, this year the workshop will focus on the topic of labelling. Thoughts and ideas are encouraged to help define what is good/best practice around these challenging techniques, and give an insight into future potential developments. https://www.rms.org.uk/discover-engage/event-calendar/super-resolution-workshop.html

July 15-16, 2019
Crick EM Symposium: Focus on Correlative Imaging Across Scales
London, UK

Continuing on from our 2017 Crick EM Symposium that celebrated the opening of the EM facilities, we will hold a two-day symposium exploring the impact of correlative imaging on biomedical research across scales. The symposium will include talks from research and technology leaders in imaging, from the macromolecular through to the whole organism scales, with a particular emphasis on how these new techniques can be applied to biomedical research. We will also hear about cutting edge developments in correlative imaging and big microscopy data. There will be a large interactive exhibition from our commercial collaborators.

July 17-19, 2019
Crick Advanced Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM) Course 2019
London, UK

The hands-on CLEM course will cover three correlative workflows - 3D CLEM, Integrated Light and EM, and cryo CLEM - using a range of techniques and equipment including Near Infrared Branding, micro CT, Serial Block Face SEM, Focused Ion Beam SEM, high pressure freezing, in-resin fluorescence, ultraLM, integrated light and SEM (SECOM), plunge freezing and cryo-fluorescence. There will also be a CLEM image analysis tutorial session. There are limited places available on the CLEM course.

One day flowcytometryUK Meeting 2019
Cambridge, UK

The one day flowcytometryUK 2019 Meeting will take place in Cambridge highlighting the diverse areas in which cytometry is a vital resource. There will be scientific presentations from a number of speakers interspersed with commercial flash presentations. A commercial exhibition will allow delegates to see recent developments in the field and the meeting also afford a great opportunity to network with fellow cytometrists in a relaxed and informal environment.

January 26-31, 2020
Liquid Phase Electron Microscopy Gordon Research Conference
Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco (Italy)

This Gordon Research Conference aims discussing the latest research results, advances in method, and future directions of LPEM. It presents an international forum for scientists from multiple disciplines and at different stages in their career. Discussion will focus on the usage and development of this new in situ technology to study fundamental aspects involving the structure and dynamics of organic and inorganic materials, and biological specimens. Topics will include: innovation in liquid cells and holder designs; microscopy and spectroscopy; beam sample interactions and the use of low dose LPEM; nucleation and growth of nanoparticles and crystals; electrochemistry; imaging in ionic liquids; the self-assembly and structure of soft matter; studying biological samples, for example, protein function; and advanced image acquisition, analysis and data interpretation.
