RBSM organizes yearly conferences, sponsors specialist courses, offers young researchers travel grants, and hands out awards for exquisite microscopy artwork and outstanding PhD dissertations in the field of microscopy or microscopy-inspired research.
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.
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.
