Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Montana
Anyone interested in learning the latest techniques in light and electron microscopy can register for the Microscopy of Infectious Disease Agents Symposium at NIAID’s Rocky Mountain Laboratories in Hamilton, Mont. NIAID is sponsoring the event, and there is no registration fee. The Keynote speakers are Sriram Subramaniam (NCI) and Hari Shroff (NIBIB). The symposium will bring together a diverse group of leading researchers who apply microscopic imaging and related techniques to the study of human pathogens. The symposium also will cover recent progress in light and electron microscopy relevant to imaging viruses, bacteria, prions, host cells and tissues.
In addition to scientific presentations, symposium workshops will teach various aspects of the emerging technologies. The field of microscopic imaging is rapidly evolving as advances in both instrumentation and computational sciences are enabling a greatly expanding range of analyses. Symposium seminars and posters will provide an opportunity to present research findings and exchange ideas. Those interested in presenting can submit abstracts, due by June 15.
