Introducing the Microscopy Club

Lead by the TRI Microscopy team, there's always something new and exciting and beautiful being discovered under the microscopes. To bring together the knowledge and skills of those using the facility. 

Microscopy Club is an informal gathering to discuss your microscopy issues. We discuss techniques for staining, problems people are encountering… all over delicious cake, muffins and drinks.

The 1st meeting was held on Friday 15th of September and had Dr Edwige Roy presenting her technical work for ‘skinbow’ imaging, there were roughly 40 attendees and everyone had a great time.

Meetings are to be held every month as requested, the next meeting will be Friday 20th October at 11am in the level 7 tearoom. Dr Susan Millard has volunteered to talk to us about her bone imaging using the Vectra spectral imaging system! A reminder will be sent, and details published in the weekly events email.

We look forward to seeing you at our next session!
