ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.

Light Microscopy Summer School, 6-8-July 2020, University of York, UK

We will again be hosting the Light Microscopy Summer School at York (The EC stated most culturally vibrant city in the UK as well as being one of the most beautiful historic cities) in July 2020.


This 3-day course will be immediately followed by a two day hands-on Confocal Course – Getting the most from your Confocal Microscope.


The course is open to anyone and run by the charity, the Royal Microscopical Society, as part of their remit to support the microscopy community.

The Light Microscopy summer school is an annual three day course held at the University of York covering the principles of light microscopy.

Participants are also trained in practical issues surrounding light microscopy. After introductory presentations, the course is taught predominantly through hands-on practical sessions.

The course is suitable for both novices and more experienced users wanting to gain a greater understanding of the microscope and feedback every year is always fantastic. Students came from a range of backgrounds in 2019, within both research and commercial organisations. All benefited greatly from the Course and left with increased understanding and skills.
