3rd Bridging Nordic Microscopy Infrastructure (BNMI) network conference

The BNMI network conference brings the Nordic imaging infrastructures, including NMI, closer together and strengthens our collaboration. The goal of the meeting is to encourage networking between application scientists, developers and industry in order to improve the quality and impact of microscopy in the Nordic countries. The third Bridging Nordic Microscopy Infrastructure (BNMI) network conference will take place April 9th-12th 2024 in the beautiful Norwegian mountains. Deadline for registration is February 8th 2024.

Workshop on dynamical microscopy

The advanced light microscopy (ALM) node of NMI welcomes you to a SciLifeLab workshop together with Zeiss on dynamical microscopy. It will cover imaging modalities such as AIRY, lattice lightsheet and FCS/DP, including quality control and image analysis. There will be a combination of technical information and applications, as well as parallel demo sessions.

Time of event: March 6, 2024
Location: SciLifeLab, Tomtebodavägen 23, Solna, Sweden
Registration: hans.blom@scilifelab.se

Basic Course in Scanning and Transmission Electron Microscopy (SEM/TEM) for Life Sciences

It is time to sign up for the SEM/TEM course given by the NMI node in Umeå next semester. This course covers lectures and practical demonstrations in SEM and TEM techniques, specifically for life science applications. The contents include principles of electron microscopy, specimen preparation, cryo-electron microscopy and correlative light-electron microscopy. The course is free but requires full attendance. For electron microscopy in physical science applications, there will be a similar-content basic course later.

Time of event: February 20-22, 2024
Registration deadline: January 26, 2024
Location: UCEM & KBC, Umeå University
