Why attend?

The processes of life are naturally dynamic in space and time from the atomic to the organismal level. The rapid development of imaging methods across this full scale of biological organisation is revolutionising our ability to visualise the inner workings of proteins, protein complexes, organelles, cells, tissues, organs and whole organisms. Being able to see biological processes unfold in real time allows us to understand the mechanism of life as well as disease.


The symposium will bring together the leading developers of imaging methods with cutting edge applications that illustrate how imaging can answer biological questions. We will place emphasis on methods that are able to capture the dynamics of life, spanning the whole range from molecular resolution to imaging of whole organisms.


Imaging Technologies:

  • Superresolution microscopy
  • Single molecule imaging
  • Image analysis
  • Correlative imaging
  • Probes and biosensors
  • Light sheet microscopy
  • Intravital imaging

Scientific Fields:

  • Structural biology
  • Cell biology
  • Developmental biology
  • Disease biology
  • Bioimage informatics

Who should attend?

Everybody interested in the latest imaging technologies and their applications in the life sciences. The symposium provides many opportunities for presentations, discussions and interactions between students, postdocs, junior as well as senior investigators.
