Virtual UK Light Microscopy Facility Meeting 2021

7 – 8 January 2021
+ Add to calendar

Scientific Organiser: Dr Ann Wheeler, Dr Peter O'Toole, Dr Claire Brown, Dr Alex Sossick, Dr Alison North  

The next Facility Meeting aimed at people running or working in light microscopy facilities will be held at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine.

From very humble beginnings, we have grown to a much more significant and influential community of facility managers. Numbers of attendees have grown 10 fold since the first meeting in 2006 as more and more facilities have opened. We now represent one of the best organised facility groupings in the UK if not indeed the world.

Following on from previous years, you can expect to find out more on the latest developments in UK Bioimaging and how we can feed in to wider international groups that are starting up.  We will also discuss some of the basic elements (funding, impact measures) of running a core facility as well as the latest technological and application developments that effect ourselves and our users. 

Virtual Sponsorship Opportunities will be made available by the end of the month.
