SCANDEM 2019 conference (12-14, June) – the 70th annual meeting of the Nordic Microscopy Society in Gothenburg!


The SCANDEM 2019 is designed to bring experts, researchers, technicians and exhibitors together from different life and material sciences imaging modalities to stimulate knowledge exchange and the formation of new collaborations. SCANDEM association website: http://www.scandem.org/

The program will offer an attractive combination of lectures and poster sessions from electron and light microscopy, X-ray to image analysis, with poster presenters selected for short talks. It will also provide excellent opportunities for discussions and informal gatherings. Take the opportunity to challenge your brain, create a new network, and maintain existing relations! The parallel sessions will cover the following topics within imaging research: Imaging across scales/multimodal Microscopy (Correlative microscopy, cryo-EM, X-rays, 3D volume EM, etc.); Live & Fast super-resolution microscopy – Frontiers in imaging of ultrafast processes; Molecular and Functional Imaging; Quantitative high spatial resolution spectroscopy; In situ Microscopy;  Artificial Intelligence in big data analysis, and computational microscopy. In addition, to notable scientists, the meeting will also attract younger researchers and technicians who are building their careers and are looking to interact with leaders in the field.  We hope that you will be able to join us in Gothenburg for what is certain to be a very exciting and educational meeting.

EMBO Practical Course

Advanced methods of electron microscopy in cell biology

10 – 20 June 2019, Czech Republic


This is an international practical EMBO course, which will take place in June 10-20, 2019 in České Budějovice, in the campus of the Biology Center.

During the intensive EMBO course, students will be able to practice a number of advanced EM methods in cell biology, accompanied by experienced lecturers from around the world in EM using electron microscopes available at the Laboratory of Electron Microscopy.
