Electron Microscopy Methods at the Convergence of Materials and Life Sciences
State College, PA

This two-week course will emphasize TEM methods that can be applied to both life and materials sciences. Synergistic opportunities exist for researchers that choose to cross disciplinary boundaries and apply techniques initially developed in other fields. Topics include low dose techniques, cryo instrumentation, EDS & EELS spectroscopy, tomography including TEM, SEM & FIB methods, sample preparation, STEM, in-situ, single particle methods, polymer and beam sensitive materials applications. Limited to 20 participants, hands-on lab sessions and demos in addition to lectures.

19th International Microscopy Congress (IMC19)
Sydney, Australia

The Australian Microscopy and Microanalysis Society extend a warm invitation to you to join us at the 19th International Microscopy Congress (IMC19) to be held 9 -14 September 2018 in Sydney, Australia.

The Congress theme, ‘Microscopy: Bridging the Sciences’, will bring together more than 2,000 researchers, decision makers, national microscopy societies, industry partners, and other stakeholders involved in microscopy sciences from all over the world. We are planning an outstanding scientific program led by world-renowned plenary speakers that will showcase exciting new developments in microscopy and demonstrate the transformational role of microscopy in underpinning a range of physical and life sciences.

While the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge provide the backdrop to this exciting event, Sydney is the gateway to a myriad of unique Australian experiences. We look forward to warmly welcoming you, your family, and your friends to Australia for this once in a lifetime experience.
