We will be focusing this year on submitted talks and so do get your abstracts in to come and tell us about your microscopy research either in application or development, you can submit abstracts for an oral or poster presentation using the JotFrom below.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Juan Varela from the University of St Andrews for our keynote talk of the day, “Nano-scale dynamics in the brain

Juan Varela studied physics in Uruguay and did his PhD in Ireland at the Centre for Bio-Nano Interactions, University College Dublin. He subsequently did a postdoc at the Interdisciplinary Institute for Neurosciences in Bordeaux (France), and a second postdoc in neurodegeneration at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge (UK). Juan has recently established his research group at the University of St Andrews funded by a European Research Council Starting Grant. His main research interests are the use of nanotechnology and high resolution microscopy to understand and cure neurodegenerative diseases.

We are very happy to announce Zeiss as this years’ sponsor of the Symposium and are grateful to Mark Montgomery for his input over the years.

From 2020 onwards we will be rotating the Industry representative committee position and therefore our sponsor for each year, please get in touch with us if you would be interested.


Don’t forget our imaging competition, you can send in your entries here!
