Super-Resolution Light Microscopy Workshop

Super-Resolution Light Microscopy Workshop

Light Microscopy Imaging Center
Indiana University Bloomington
May 18-20, 2011
Myers Hall, Room 130

The past decade has produced exciting advances in light microscopy. Researchers have developed several techniques to finally break the diffusion-limited resolution barrier. These techniques are currently moving out of the physics labs and are now commercially available. For this workshop we are bringing in speakers who are experts on the theory and practice of super-resolution microscopy - including Structured Illumination, PALM, and single molecule imaging. The workshop will feature our new OMX Structured-Illumination microscope and will include time to image your samples and see what super-resolution microscopy can do for your research.


Registration and the workshop are free. Please register to help us plan for the proper number of participants.
