"Next generation in optical imaging" - Edinburgh Super-Resolution Imaging Consortium (ESRIC) launch symposium

  • When:  Friday 28 June 2013
  • Time:  9.30 - 4.30 pm
  • Location:  Postgraduate Centre Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh

The MRC/BBSRC/EPSRC recently awarded funds to establish the 'Next generation in optical imaging' initiative to establish the Edinburgh Super-Resolution Imaging Consortium (ESRIC), jointly between The Universities of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt.

The instruments are now being commissioned and shortly we will have available atomic force microscopy, PALM, STORM, GSDIM, structured illumination and gated STED, affording researchers the ability to examine and quantify cellular processes at high speed over several orders of scale all below the diffraction limit.

To launch ESRIC, introduce the facilities, start a collaborative network and provide details of how researchers can access the instruments and expertise on offer, there is a launch symposiumon Friday 28 June

The symposium has confirmed speakers at the forefront of their fields using biological imaging as well as experts creating the next generation of imaging technologies, including

  • Professor Brad Amos (LMB, Cambridge and Strathclyde University),
  • Professor Silvio Rizzoli (European Neuroscience Institute, Gottingen),
  • Professor Ilan Davis (Oxford University),
  • Professor Gail McConnell (Strathclyde University),
  • Professor Bill Earnshaw, (University of Edinburgh),
  • Professor Alan Greenaway (Heriot Watt University)
  • Professor Wendy Bickmore (MRC IGMM, University of Edinburgh).

A poster session will also be running to allow visitors and perhaps more junior researchers to present their work.
