Practical course in advanced microscopy
ETH Zurich and University of Zurich, Switzerland - January 16-21, 2011

Winterschool 2011 This advanced microscopy course is intended for PhD students and post-graduates with prior experience in microscopy. The goal of the course is to teach and train fundamental knowledge and skills in a specific microscopic technique. Students will be able to apply this technique to their own present and future projects. Practical work consists of seven different modules covering a specific topic each (please see description below). Each module lasts throughout the whole course. Students will participate in one practical module only. For the practical training the students will use the latest instrumentation. Apart from practical modules, theoretical sessions will provide sound background of all the different techniques for all students. An Industry Day, Wednesday, January 19th, provides an overview of the latest developments in instrumentation and techniques currently on the market. Different companies in the field of light and electron microscopy will be invited to this event.


Winterschool in Advanced Microscopy
16-01-2011 - University of Zürich

The 5th Winter School 2011 in 3D Light and Electron Microscopy, organized by EMEZ, the Electron Microscopy ETHZ, LMC the Light Microscopy Center , ETHZ and the Centre for Microscopy and Image Analysis of University of Zurich, covers a very broad imaging program. Cutting edge techniques using a wide range of imaging techniques such as high resolution light microscopy, life cell microscopy, fine structure preparation for TEM. Immune electron microscopy, correlative microscopy (CLSM/FIB/SEM/TEM and FLM/SEM), cryo-TEM and STEM Tomography are put in the context of selected imaging problems. In particular, multimodal and multiscale imaging methods as well as supporting technologies such as computer aided imaging analysis and modeling are discussed.


3rd European short course on "Time-Resolved Microscopy and Correlation Spectroscopy"
Berlin, Germany February 15 - 17, 2011

The course is intended for individuals wishing an in-depth introduction to the principles of time-resolved fluorescence microscopy and its applications to the Life Sciences. Attendees are typically professionals who are using or intend to use fluorescence microscopy in their research. Most attendees have some knowledge of fluorescence, typically in a specialized area. However, other individuals, from totally different research areas and industry, get the opportunity to enter this exciting field in a very effective way and benefit especially from the experimental section.

The 43rd crystallographic course at Ettore Majorana Centre
Ettore Majorana Centre, Erice, Italy 2-12 giugno 2011

In the era of nanoscience, the size of particles to be investigated gets smaller and smaller but the traditional techniques used for characterization of materials are becoming inadequate. Electron Crystallography (EC) is a powerful and sometimes the unique tool to study crystal structure and properties of nano sized materials. It is a broad branch of science comprising both academic research and industrial needs. Materials studied using EC methods vary in size and nature, ranging from inorganic nanoparticles to biological samples. Exciting developments such as aberration correctors, dedicated specimen-holders, highly sensitive cameras, new data acquisition techniques, automated routines for data collection and new data processing softwares allow electron crystallographers to solve crystal structures from nano particles at atomic resolution. The Course intends to review the structure solution using electron crystallography methods as well as novel applications; it will be divided into three major fields: 1) provide a strong background on crystallography in general and electron crystallography in particular 2) introduce students to upcoming techniques for data acquisition and data processing as well as to the state-of-the-art electron microscopy 3) cover different approaches for structure solution and derive structure-property relationship The emphasis will be given on the following subjects: structural and charge density studies of organic molecules like pigments and drugs, protein structures, complicated inorganic and metallic materials in the amorphous, nano-, meso- and quasi-crystalline state, minerals and magnetic materials.


The XIVth International Conference on Electron Microscopy
June 26-30, 2011, Wisła, Poland

The scope of the EM2011 is to provide a broad overview of the recent achievements in electron microscopy in the three major areas of instrumentation and methods, materials science and life science. Plenary and invited lectures will give overviews on exciting new developments highlighting the application of the new electron microscopy techniques in physics, chemistry, materials science and live science.

AFM-BioMed Conference
Parigi 23-27 Agosto 2011

AFM BioMed Conferences are dedicated to life sciences and nanomedicine applications and investigate how Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) solves relevant biological bottlenecks and provides innovative solutions for healthcare. The conferences link International academic and industrial experts in life science, being involved either with AFM use or with medical/biological studies. The meetings provide a clear and comprehensive overview on advances in this field through keynote presentations, lectures, poster sessions and discussion forums. Topics include single molecules, membrane, and cell biology and nanomedicine studies combining imaging and affinity measurements. Presentations stress the impact of AFM techniques in life sciences and nanomedicine. The meetings act as a forum to promote innovative cross linked research and highlight the power of integrating AFM with other optical and analytical techniques.

Nanodrug delivery: from the bench to the patient
10-13 Ottobre 2011 - Aula Pocchiari - Istituto Superiore Sanità - Viale Regina Elena, 299 - Rome, ITALY

After the success of the previous workshop on nanodrug delivery held in Rome in 2010, we are pleased to invite you to attend the congress Nanodrug delivery: from the bench to the patient. The symposium will focus on the various steps involved in the translation of new nanoparticles from the laboratory bench to the patient bedside. During the last decade a large number of nanoparticles have been developed and applied in various fields of medicine, including imaging, diagnosis, therapy and regenerative medicine. They have been specifically designed to promote the transport of diagnostic or therapeutic agents through biologic barriers, to reach defined targets, to mediate molecular interactions, to respond to specific local or external stimuli, and to detect defined biomolecules. Some of them are currently used in clinical protocols, some are in clinical trials, a multitude of them are still in preclinical development. All of them have arised considerable optimism in terms of unanticipated and unlimited opportunities in therapeutic treatment and diagnostics.
