The Biological Optical Microscopy Platform, is running its annual symposium on Monday 22nd August 2016.
The Applications in Fluorescence Microscopy Symposium will be a mix of sessions including an advanced techniques session, oral presentations selected from abstracts and a plenary session.
Location: Auditorium, Peter Doherty Institute, University of Melbourne
Date & Time: 1-5pm, Monday 22nd August 2016
Registration: Registration is free and open to all. Please follow this link to register for the symposium.
The Applications in Fluorescence Microscopy Symposium will be a mix of presentations including advanced techniques, talks from submitted abstracts and a plenary session.
More details of each of these can be found below:
1) Advanced Techniques: Talks from researchers that use advanced methods on fluorescence microscopes.
2) Trade display: A full trade display will run during registration & the afternoon tea. There will be a passport scheme with a $50 prize, visit them all for your chance of winning. Plus, it might help your research as well.
3) ECR/PhD Oral presentation: Selected from submitted abstracts and open only to ECR & graduate students. Three speaking places will be assigned based on the novelty of the techniques or technology used to investigate the biological question.
There is a $200 prize for the best Oral presentation. Abstract deadline is 5pm on Friday 12th August. Please send a title, author list, affiliations and a 200 word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) Plenary Session: The plenary presentation will be given by Associate Professor Kaylene Simpson from the Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics (Peter Mac Cancer Centre). Her talk is entitled "Enabling Discovery using Quantitative Phenotypic High Content Screening.”
