ESRIC Super-Resolution Summer School 2020, 13-17 July 2020, Edinburgh, UK


Scientific organisers : Jessica Valli and Ann Wheeler

The ESRIC super-resolution summer school is a five-day residential course held in Edinburgh. The course is designed to give participants a thorough grounding in super-resolution microscopy in an informal and intimate setting. It brings together leading academics and the major suppliers of super-resolution microscopes to provide expertise and guidance in the theory, practise and analysis of structured illumination microscopy (SIM), stimulated emission depletion microscopy (STED), single molecule localization microscopies (PALM, sptPALM and dSTORM) and other new developments in the field.

The course kicks off with informal talks from world renowned super-resolution professionals. After they have laid the theoretical groundwork, it is put into practise by our industry partners in a range of technology workshops covering all major super-resolution modalities. Participants will have ample time to gain project-specific advice from all of the academic experts and suppliers as well as the opportunity to test their own samples on different super resolution systems. The course is suitable for anyone with prior experience of fluorescence microscopy looking to exploit the benefits of super-resolution microscopy in their research.
