The 14th Multination Congress on Microscopy will be organized in Belgrade (Serbia), from 15 to 20 Sptember 2019.

The aim of MCM conferences is to become a worldwide forum for discussion on different application of various microscopical techniques for both experts and young researchers. MCM conferences have always been a good instrument for establishment of new liaisons between laboratories interested in similar projects. Trade exhibitions also helped to gain insight into the newest development of microscopy.

The conference will discuss in depth the mechanisms of interaction between new chemical-biological formulations and biophysical systems to improve the transport of drugs into normal and tumor cells. The enhancement of the therapeutic efficiency of a system of nanometric dimensions requires the development of new skills, within planning strategies leading to the expansion and sharing of Remarksknowledge in a multidisciplinary environment.

In the Framework of Nanoinnovation 2019, University La Sapienza, NanoItaly, AIRI and SISM organize the Electron Microscopy School "Bridging organic and inorganic electron microscopy methods"

The recent achievements of transmission electron microscopy, with particular attention to the cryo-microscopy aspects are illustrated by recognized experts in the field. The school, structured also for non-specialists, illustrates the basis of Transmission Electron Microscopy either in material science and in life sciences, describes the main methods providing information at atomic level both on hard and soft matter together with the main sample requirement and the relative preparation methods.

The Conventional and Counting EELS spectrocopy school is an intensive 4-day training school that incorporates lectures, computer laboratories, and microscope practicals to provide participants with comprehensive, hands-on training on key EELS topics and technology. The practical lessons will be made at the new Beyond-Nano Sub-Ångstom Lab on integrated JEOL GIF/EELS systems. Thanks to the Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) nowadays we can reveals details of natural and man-made structures even at sub-nanometer scale. Electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) is the ideal analytical tools to the high spatial resolution provided by TEM in both the conventional and scanned (STEM) imaging modes.

These are the last few days for applying for an exciting Microscopy PhD program at Diaspro Lab - deadline June 12th - for motivated future researchers.
