Promoting Microscopy Education
Inaugural Fall Symposium, Princeton University November 1, 2018
The Inaugural meeting was a great success! We had over 135 attendees and 20 vendors. Introductory remarks by acting Dean for Research Karla Ewalt and Molecular Biology Department Chair Bonnie Bassler were enthusiastically well received. Plenary talks by Hari Schroff and Esther Bullitt provide insights to exciting new imaging technologies.
Our first regional mini-symposium was attended by approximately 30 attendees in Philadelphia on February 13, 2019. Five exciting talks focusing on biological light microscopy. Oh, and Matt Farber, Director of the Brewing Science Certificate Program was pretty cool too! Thanks to Chris Janetopoulos and Ken Myers for organizing!
This event was sponsored by Nikon! Thank you!
Our first Spring Meeting was attended by approximately 125 attendees in New York City on April 24, 2019. The theme of this meeting was "Pushing the Limits of Biological Imaging," with talks on techniques to push the speed limit, the resolution limit, and the depth limit in optical microscopy. Plenary speakers Alipasha Vaziri and Elizabeth Hillman highlighted the event. Thanks to Alison North and Darcy Peterka for organizing!
