The power of fluorescence-based optical imaging to drive major discoveries in cell biology is universally recognised. This power stems from the combined advantages of molecular specificity, single-molecule sensitivity, sub-cellular resolution, and real-time data collection from live cells and whole organisms. In the last few years, development of new imaging methods and advances in technology have revolutionized the way that we image biological materials and process large data sets and these advances are now impacting across numerous fields of cell biology.
The aim of this Crick Symposium is to showcase the novel microscopy development projects currently ongoing within Crick and its HEI partners and to promote future collaborations between physicists, cell and developmental biologists.

When & Where
The Francis Crick Institute
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the scientific mechanisms of living things. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to find new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent illness such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections and neurodegenerative diseases.
By bringing together scientists from many disciplines, the Crick will have the scale, vision and expertise to tackle the most challenging scientific questions underpinning health and disease.
The Francis Crick Institute was founded by six of the UK's most successful scientific and academic organisations - the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the Wellcome Trust, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King's College London.
