Crick EM Symposium: Focus on Correlative Imaging Across Scales, 15-19 July 2019, Francis Crick Institute, UK


Crick EM Symposium: Focus on Correlative Imaging Across Scales
With the Royal Microscopical Society

Symposium: Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th July 2019
Advanced CLEM Course: Wednesday 17th – Friday 19th July 201
Location: Francis Crick Institute, 1 Midland Road, London NW1 1AT

Dear Colleagues

We are pleased to announce that The Francis Crick Institute will host a two-day symposium exploring the impact of electron microscopy on biomedical research across scales, with a focus on correlative imaging. We have an exciting line-up of talks from imaging scientists at the cutting edge of correlative microscopy development and application, from macromolecules to whole organisms, and from biomedical scientists who apply these techniques to reveal new insight into health and disease. The symposium follows the 2017 Crick EM Opening Symposium, which united researchers and technology developers from the high-resolution single particle cryo-EM through to the large-volume brain imaging communities, with more than 350 attendees and a large hands-on exhibition from more than 20 commercial collaborators. Early-bird registration closes on Friday 31st May. The speakers include:

Molecules in Cells
Bridget Carragher (NYCSB, USA)
Carolyn Moores (Birkbeck, UK)
Tanmay Bharat (Oxford University, UK)
Michael Elbaum (Weitzmann, Israel)
Peter Peters (Maastricht University, The Netherlands)
Gaia Pigino (MPI Dresden, Germany)
Thom Sharpe (LUMC, The Netherlands)

Cells
Jost Enninga (Institut Pasteur, France)
Lorna Hodgson (Bristol University, UK)
Jeremy Carlton (Francis Crick Institute, UK)
Clare Futter (Institute of Ophthalmology, UK)

Tissues
Eva Frickel (Francis Crick Institute, UK)
Christian Stigloher (University of Wurzburg, Germany)
Graham Knott (EPFL, Switzerland)
Rachel Templin (EMBL, Germany)

New Frontiers – Correlative Imaging
Jacob Hoogenboom (TU Delft, The Netherlands)
Alexandra Pacaneau (ESRF, France)
Martin Jones (Francis Crick Institute, UK)

New Frontiers – Modelling and Image Analysis
Katie Bentley (Francis Crick Institute, UK)
Anna Kreshuk (EMBL, Germany)
Stephan Preibisch (MDC Berlin, Germany)

The Future of Correlative Imaging
Andreas Walther (BioImaging Austria)

The symposium will take place on Monday 15th and Tuesday 16th July 2019. Talks will take place from 10am to 6pm each day, and there will be a symposium dinner on the Monday, and a drinks reception on the Tuesday. Registration can be found at the Royal Microscopical Society website.

The symposium will be followed by a three-day advanced CLEM course from Wednesday 17th to Friday 19th July 2019. This will involve a series of hands-on workshops, demos and tutorials in the comprehensive EM facilities at the Crick, run by experts from the Crick and our academic and commercial partners. The course will cover 3D correlative light and electron microscopy, integrated light and electron microscopy, cryo-correlative light and electron microscopy, and software solutions for correlative imaging. The deadline for applications for the course is 30th April 2019.Further details of the course can be found here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Crick in July!
