Novel Techniques in Microscopy (NTM)

Novel Techniques in Microscopy (NTM)

12 - 15 abril 2015
Renaissance Vancouver Harbourside Hotel, Vancouver, Canada

Novel Techniques in Microscopy is focused on the development of new and creative techniques in optical microscopy for biological or biomedical applications.

Advances in optical microscopy are continually enhancing imaging performance and versatility. Examples include increasing depth penetration in scattering media, improving resolution beyond the diffraction limit, increasing speed, enhancing sensitivity and/or specificity, developing novel contrast mechanisms, addressing challenges related to intravital imaging, and more. This meeting will provide a rich collection of fresh and creative technical developments in optical microscopy for biological or biomedical applications.
