After a short break, we are excited to announce that our webinar series FocalPlane features… returns this November with a new format.
Every month, FocalPlane features… will focus on a specific microscopy topic. Each seminar will host three speakers: an invited speaker who is a specialist on the topic and who will give an overview of the field, and two additional speakers (usually junior PIs), invited by the specialist, who will talk about their research.
The next FocalPlane features… webinar is on Monday 8 November and focuses on data analysis for volume EM. The speakers will be:
- Anna Kreshuk “Whole organism segmentation”
- Dagmar Kainmueller “Matching Drosophila neuronal morphologies across imaging modalities”
- Jan Funke “Prediction of functional properties from EM volumes of neural tissue”
The talks will be hosted in Remo, our browser-based conferencing platform. Following the Q&A session we will host a more informal session especially designed for early-career researchers to meet the speakers. In order to facilitate the conversation, a maximum of 7 people will meet with each speaker at a time.
During this session, we will have two more ‘tables’ available if you are waiting: one for FocalPlane, hosted by Community Manager Esperanza Agullo-Pascual, and another for Journal of Cell Science Editors, so you will also have the chance to meet and speak with us if you would like to.
