University of Southampton Bio Imaging Symposium 2017

Friday 6th October 2017 - Sponsored by ZEISS


The event is proudly hosted by The Biomedical Imaging Unit (BIU) and The Institute for Life Sciences (IfLS) of the University of Southampton.

The Symposium:
This bio imaging symposium aims to bring together distinguished life science researchers from universities across England to share and discuss their research. Presentation topics will include developmental biology, neurosciences, cilia biology and cancer immunology. The day, made up of numerious talks from well-respected speakers, will show how various imaging technologies have enabled biological breakthrough in recent years.

These imaging technologies include: confocal imaging, superresolution imaging, multiphoton imaging, label-free imaging, lightsheet imaging, scanning electron microscopy and laser capture microdissection.

This is a free of charge event with refreshments provided.
