2nd Microscopy Congress


Building on the success of our 2015 Microscopy Congress in London, Global Engage is pleased to announce the 2nd Microscopy Congress, which will be held on 14 – 15 November, 2016 in London.

Attracting experts working in all areas of microscopy for biological sciences, including optical, electron and scanning probe microscopy, super-resolution microscopy, 3D imaging, Cryo-EM and CLEM, the conference will examine the latest developments in technologies and techniques being used for progressing medical research in areas such as diagnostic microscopy, neuroscience, pathology, and developmental biology. The meeting will also focus on image analysis and data handling.

With significant breakthroughs in resolution capabilities brought about by the 2014 Nobel Prize in Chemistry winners, this is an exciting time to be working in microscopy. Not only is it one of the most fundamental techniques used by biologists, but microscopy is also facilitating crucial advances in healthcare and drug discovery, allowing scientists to observe the micro world in ever increasing detail.



Should you be an expert in developing microscopy technologies and platforms, or a scientist using microscopy to further medical research, the conference will be an excellent opportunity to learn, share, discuss and engage with the most current research and technology in microscopy. During the two-day conference, there will be networking, breaks to promote interaction with your peers, expert-led case study presentations, and a dynamic exhibition room filled with technology providers showcasing their technologies and solutions.

Comments about last year’s meeting

Opportunities to network

It was well organised with lots of opportunities for networking and the talks were heterogeneous.

Interesting talks

I heard some interesting talks, met interesting people and saw some useful equipment at the sponsorship stands.

Well organised

I like the overall organization of the Congress and I think the schedule was established well. In just two days there were a lot of lectures and still enough time for poster presentations, visiting the exhibitors and discussions with the experts.
