ESRIC Super-Resolution Summer School


ESRIC Super-Resolution Summer School

Heriot-Watt University Riccarton
EH14 4AS Edinburgh

The ESRIC super-resolution summer school is a five-day residential course held in Edinburgh during the world-renowned Edinburgh Festival.

The course is designed to give participants a thorough grounding in super-resolution microscopy in an informal and intimate setting. It brings together leading academics and the major suppliers of super-resolution microscopes to provide expertise and guidance in structured illumination microscopy (SIM), stimulated emission depletion microscopy (STED), AiryScan Microscopy and single molecule localization microscopies (PALM, sptPALM and dSTORM). The summer school will include informal lectures on the theory of these approaches, the benefits and limitations of each technology and how they can be applied to real world biological research questions.

This will be supported by extensive hands on workshops, using the latest equipment, from the major microscopy suppliers. In addition participants will have ample time to gain project specific advice from all of the academic experts and suppliers through dedicated Q&A sessions and informal social events. The course is suitable for anyone with prior experience of fluorescence microscopy looking to exploit the benefits of super-resolution microscopy in their research.

Confirmed Speakers: Professor Silvio Rizzoli, Dr Erik Manders, Dr Ilaria Testa, Professor Samuel Hess, Dr Sebastian van de Linde, Dr Wesley Legant

Practical workshops: Zeiss - Airy Scan, Olympus UK - PALM, Leica Microsystems - GSDIM and Gated-STED, Nikon - SIM, Hamamatsu, SVI, Chromotek and Gattaquant.
