Highlights from the year 2017

RBSM Meeting 2017

On September 7th, RBSM organised a focused symposium on high-dimensional fluorescence microscopy in Antwerp. The meeting was accompanied by an award session honouring Belgian PhD-students that have performed significant contributions to the microscopy field with their work.

From Pictures to Numbers

RBSM sponsored a 4-day inter-university specialist course on quantitative fluorescence microscopy. The combination of hands-on experience at advanced microscope equipment with guided image analysis exercises proved to be an optimal formula and resulted in an excellent rating (8/10) from the participants.
