Swiss Microscopy Core Facility Day 2020

This year, the Swiss Microscopy Core Facility Day will take place on Wednesday, September 2nd, in Bern at the University of Bern. The registration for the meeting is now open.

As in the previous years, we want to spend a day on topics related to microscopy, image analysis and of particular interest to core facilities. The morning will be dedicated to plenary talks and discussions and in the afternoon we will stick to the concept of round table discussions. Currently, we collect topics for these discussions. We are happy to receive and include your suggestions! Please send E-mail to ruth.lyck@tki.unibe.ch

We currently work up a Covid-19 safety concept and thus are confident that we can welcome you here in Bern. However, we are also prepared to switch to an online event, if required. Due to organization reasons we kindly ask you to register as soon as possible but latest until August 21st. We’re looking forward to welcoming you soon and do not hesitate to contact us in case of questions or suggestions.
