Hard X-ray Imaging of Biological Soft Tissues symposium

Posted by , on 20 August 2021

The Francis Crick Institute is hosting the 2nd edition of ‘Hard X-ray Imaging of Biological Soft Tissues symposium’ on Thursday 14 October 2021, 12:00-18:35 BST.

This is a half day virtual meeting organised by Carles Bosch, Lucy Collinson, Elizabeth Duke, and Andreas Schaefer. Leading scientists in the field will highlight the questions currently being addressed using hard X-ray imaging techniques, volume electron microscopy and their combination with other imaging modalities, with a forward look to areas of opportunity becoming accessible as a result of the recent and upcoming synchrotron upgrades.

The program includes:

  • Correlative multimodal imaging approaches using hard X-rays
  • Limits of X-rays when imaging soft tissues
  • X-ray modalities giving 20nm-10um detail across 10um-cm 3D landscapes
  • Sample prep and large-scale volume EM
  • Round table to explore what are the bottlenecks

Confirmed speakers:

  • Darren Batey, Diamond Light Source
  • Anne Bonnin, PSI TOMCAT
  • Carles Bosch, Francis Crick Institute
  • Si Chen, Argonne National Laboratory
  • Ana Diaz, PSI cSAXS
  • Kara Fulton, CAESAR
  • Moritz Helmstaedter, MPI Brain
  • David Kastner, UCSF
  • Alexandra Pacureanu, ESRF
  • Tim Salditt, DESY
  • Yannick Schwab, EMBL
  • Claire Walsh, UCL
  • Adrian Wanner, PSI
  • Marie-Christine Zdora, PSI
