This all-day workshop will be held at the University of Leeds on Friday 3 July.

Designed to talk about the current challenges in developing and using super-resolution microscopy, this workshop will encourage discussion on topics including the potential for and feasibility of ‘home-built’ set-ups, and the types of analyses used to process and scrutinise the data.  Thoughts and ideas are encouraged to help define what is good/best practice around these challenging techniques, and give an insight into future potential developments.

The workshop will include short practical demonstrations of iSIM, PALM/STORM and the Zeiss Airy Disc Instruments.
