Dr Hari Shroff
National Insititutes of Health, Bethesda
Dr Shroff received his B.S.E. in bioengineering from the University of Washington in 2001, and under the supervision of Dr Jan Liphardt, completed his PhD in biophysics at the University of California at Berkeley in 2006. He spent the next three years performing postdoctoral research under the mentorship of Eric Betzig at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Farm Research Campus where his research focused on the development of photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM), an optical super-resolution technique. Since 2009, he has headed NIBIB's Section on High Resolution Optical Imaging at the NIH, where he and his staff continue to develop new imaging tools for use in biology. His current research interests include structured illumination microscopy, light-sheet microscopy, and neurodevelopment.
The RMS would like to thank all of the below sponsors of the LSFM 2016 event. There will be an exhibtion during the meeting giving delegates a great opportuntity to network along side tea/coffee and lunch.
If you are interested in exhibiting or sponsoring the event please.Please contact Chloe Goode for more details.

Cairn is an Independent research-orientated company specialising in microscopy solutions for the life sciences. From our origins as a provider of turnkey optical systems for fast intracellular ion measurements we have maintained close links with our academic customer base enabling us to develop a broad range of products and solutions to meet their expanding needs. Our strength lies in our understanding of both the requirements of the research microscopy community and of the advances in technology from which they can benefit. We have a “can do”, informal, and friendly attitude and are always willing to give advice. The company has evolved organically to encompass four distinct, but interrelated areas.
We are instrument designers, manufacturers and vendors of both Illumination and Detection products. Our illumination products encompass a wide range of light sources, adapters and specialist launch systems; typically used in conjunction with a third-party, or Cairn-built, microscope or macrosope. On the detection side our primary focus is on multi-channel imaging using one or more third-party cameras. These products are largely based around optical techniques, most importantly, fluorescence, optogenetics, photolysis and transmitted light imaging. Although fully independent we are closely allied with Chroma Technology and a large number of our illumination and detection products make use of their high performance interference filters.
Carl Zeiss Ltd
Carl Zeiss is an innovative technology leader in the fields of optics, precision engineering and electronic visualisation. Time and time again, we set new, pioneering standards in sophisticated technology for recognising, experiencing, measuring, analysing, structuring and processing a wide spectrum of objects. With professional optics we meet the expectations of even our most critical customers - not only in the fields of research, medicine, industry, but also for use in leisure activities.

Founded in 1978, Photometrics is the world’s premier designer and manufacturer of high-performance CCD and EMCCD cameras for the life sciences.
The original architect of the world’s 1st scientific grade microscopy EMCCD camera, researchers across the globe rely on Photometrics’ state-of-the-art imaging instrumentation, including its popular CoolSNAP™, Cascade®, QuantEM® and Evolvecameras to meet their most demanding application requirements.
Photon Lines supplies a range of scientific cameras (including CCD cameras, CMOS and sCMOS), lasers and laser components which are optimised for Lightsheet microscopy. We also supply advanced scientific imaging solutions primarily into the area of biophotonics, such as Label-Free Live Cell Imaging Systems and fluorescence microscopy equipment including the products of PhaseView, who have engineered unique 3D imaging technologies for life science microscopy applications. Based on a novel remote focusing principle, PhaseView imaging products allow for high speed 3D imaging which is only limited by camera frame rate, while keeping bio-specimens in a stable position without moving the objective or stage. Using this acquisition principle, PhaseView’s Alpha3 light sheet fluorescence microscope addresses the issue of high temporal resolution along with spatial high-resolution, to achieve 3D imaging of dynamic biological processes.
