RMS AFM & SPM Meeting 2020
Scientific Organiser: Jamie Hobbs
UK AFM & SPM 2020 represents an exciting opportunity to explore the latest developments in atomic force microscopies and scanning probe microscopies.
The AFM & SPM Meeting is held annually and provides an excellent forum for the community to meet and discuss the latest advances in the field. With an exhibition alongside organised social activities, it is one of the best events in 2020 for atomic force microscopy and scanning probe microscopy users, for PhD students and well-seasoned microscopists alike!
Registration will close for this event on Monday 15 June 2020.

Prof Jamie Hobbs
University of Sheffield
Prof Jamie Hobbs received a BSc in Physics from the University of Bristol in 1991, followed by a PhD in polymer physics, also from Bristol. Following work with Peter Barham and Andrew Keller on polymer crystallization, he worked with Mervyn Miles using and developing AFM for studying polymers. He pioneered methods for following polymer crystallization in real time, and then co-developed a new high speed scanning (videoAFM) approach which led to the launch of a spin-out company, Infinitesima Ltd. On moving to Sheffield in 2004 he started to collaborate widely with biologists, as well as further developing AFM approaches for high speed and high resolution imaging. His work is now focused on the development and application of AFM for imaging living systems, in particular bacteria, plants and cancer.

Dr Kristina Rusimova
University of Bath
Kristina Rusimova is a Prize Fellow at the University of Bath. Her research interests include atomic manipulation, hot electron transport, optical fiber fabrication, plasmonics, and alkali metal vapor spectroscopy. She obtained her first degree at the University of Birmingham (2012) and Ph.D. in nanoscience at the University of Bath (2016). Following a short postdoctoral position in photonics, she joined the Department of Physics at the University of Bath as an independent research fellow in 2018 working at the frontier between nanoscience and photonics.
'Vesicle Mechanics: A Push into the Nanoscale'
Prof Gijs Wuite
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
Prof. Gijs Wuite obtained his PhD in biophysics in 2000. Since 2001 he leads his own group at the VU University Amsterdam and in 2009 was appointed to full professor. In his research he has successfully applied quantitative physical tools to investigate fundamental problems in biology, and to search for the unification of apparently unrelated biological phenomena. Moreover, he has been at the front of recent new and fast developments of biophysical techniques that have enabled visualization, manipulation and control of complex biological reactions. In 2014 he co-founded LUMICKS, a fast growing company specialized in dynamics single molecule instruments and in 2018 he won the Dutch Physics Valorisation prize & in 2019 the Amsterdam Impact Award, for successfully launching of this company.
