In the past few years light microscopy
has been offering once unimaginable possibility of imaging structures
at a resolution that is several times higher than that of confocal
microscopy. The symposium "Visualizing the invisible in cell biology"
is aimed at all researchers in the field of biomedicine interested in
current developments in the techniques of this super-resolution
microscopy. On the first day of the symposium, world-renowned
scientists will deliver lectures on super-resolution imaging of various
cellular structures, usage of fluorescent probes and image data
processing and evaluation. The second day of the symposium will be
devoted to demonstrations during which a limited number of participants
will have an opportunity to learn how to use state-of-the-art
super-resolution and macro-confocal microscopes. Please note that it is
necessary to register separately for the demonstrations. The symposium
will be held in English.
