Crick EM Symposium: Focus on Correlative Imaging Across Scales
Continuing on from our 2017 Crick EM Symposium that celebrated the opening of the EM facilities, we will hold a two-day symposium exploring the impact of correlative imaging on biomedical research across scales. The symposium will include talks from research and technology leaders in imaging, from the macromolecular through to the whole organism scales, with a particular emphasis on how these new techniques can be applied to biomedical research. We will also hear about cutting edge developments in correlative imaging and big microscopy data. There will be a large interactive exhibition from our commercial collaborators.
Dr Lucy Collinson
EM Section Chair
The Francis Crick Institute
Lucy is Head of Electron Microscopy at The Francis Crick Institute in London. Her degree and PhD were in Microbiology, followed by a post-doctoral position in Cell Biology using light and electron microscopy to investigate membrane trafficking pathways at University College London. Following that she ran biological EM facilities, first at UCL and then at the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute, which became part of the new Francis Crick Institute in 2015. Her microscopy interests cover 3D EM, Correlative Light and EM, X-ray microscopy, image analysis, and microscope design and prototyping.

Prof Paul Verkade
University of Bristol
Paul Verkade has been involved in electron microscopy for over 20 years now and during that time has developed a particular interest in technology development, mainly in the field of Correlative Light Electron Microscopy. He loves organising training events and as such has been involved in many courses. For the RMS he is involved in the Rothamsted Research Cryo Course and was a member of the organising committee for emc2012.

The Future of Correlative Imaging
Andreas Walther (BioImaging Austria)
Please note, there is an early-bird offer available until Friday 31st May. After this date, the registration fee will raise by £20.
The symposium will be immediately followed by the 2019 UK Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy Course, from Wednesday 17th to Friday 19th July. The hands-on CLEM course will cover three correlative workflows - 3D CLEM, Integrated Light and EM, and cryo CLEM - using a range of techniques and equipment including Near Infrared Branding, micro CT, Serial Block Face SEM, Focused Ion Beam SEM, high pressure freezing, in-resin fluorescence, ultraLM, integrated light and SEM (SECOM), plunge freezing and cryo-fluorescence. There will also be a CLEM image analysis tutorial session. There are limited places available on the CLEM course.
Please contact Raffaella Carzaniga to express interest.
Location: Francis Crick Institute, London, NW1 1ST

DELMIC products are focused on high performance, user friendly, integrated, solutions.
Correlative microscopy combines functional information from fluorescence microscopy with structural information from the electron microscope. The SECOM platform integrates a fluorescence microscope with a scanning electron microscope. This combination makes it possible to do fast correlative microscopy with high overlay precision. The system is easy to use for both optical and electron microscopists and makes correlation as simple as drag-and-drop.
Delmic’s second product line provides a platform for novel experiments in nanophotonics. The SPARC system is used for high-performance cathodoluminescence detection. It gives maximum collection efficiency through the precise alignment of the mirror with respect to the electron beam combined with top-of-the-line detectors. This makes it possible to probe structures with very low photon yield. The SPARC system also offers the unique feature of doing angle resolved measurements, enabling momentum spectroscopy.
