University of Queensland Microscopy week 1–8 April 2014
UQ Microscopy Week combines two microscopy symposiums held together at the beginning of April 2014 aimed at strengthening the
microscopy community and exploring advancements in super-resolution.
The Queensland Brain Institute (QBI) will host the 4 days of
seminars, with the associated workshops being conducted at QBI, the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB), the Centre for Microscopy
and Microanalysis (CMM) the Translational Research Institute (TRI) and the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology
(AIBN). 40 speakers will take part in the events including both national and international leaders in the field of super-resolution
The events have been made possible through strong support from a consortium of Institutes (QBI, IMB, CMM, TRI, AIBN and PACE) and
Schools (SBMS, SMP, SCMB). UQ’s Vice-Chancellor Peter Hoj has joined in supporting this event and will make an address to launch the
super-resolution symposium along with the Ambassador of France, Stéphane Romatet.
The first symposium, Microscopy @ UQ (April 1-3), will highlight microscopy research occurring throughout UQ to strengthen
collaboration and educate early career researchers and research students. The symposium format includes morning seminars and
afternoon workshops. Catering is provided for registered guests.
The second symposium highlights advancements in super-resolution imaging (April 4) through a full day of seminars led by high profile
national and international speakers.
Speakers include Daniel Choquet (Director of the Interdisciplinary Institute for Neuroscience, Bordeaux France) and Professor Kat Gauss from the University of NSW.
