MIC Research Day 2019


The “MIC Research Day 2019” took place on July 3 and was attended by more than 120 scientists of the University of Bern and some industry partners. This yearly event is dedicated to scientific lectures from experts in specific microscopy applications of the University of Bern to improve the visibility of microscopy expert knowledge amongst us. This year, Christian Zuppinger, Stefan Tschanz, Coralie Dessauges, Ana Stojiljkovic, Josue Page and Giuseppe Locatelli gave these valuable scientific talks. Further important input was provided by the keynote speaker Nicolas Thomas, Space Research and Planetary Sciences, who explained the role of automated imaging for sampling by the Mars rover. Fabian Blank and Guillaume Witz informed about the services available at the Live Cell Imaging facility at DBMR and the support in image analysis and data management provided by SCITS, respectively. Industry talks by Rafael Kurtz, LaVision BioTec, and Oggie Golub, ThermoFisher Scientific, provided useful information on latest technology developments in the areas of light sheet and 2P microscopy and on fluorescent probes. All participants bid farewell to Marlene Wolf, the past coordinator of the PhD program Cutting Edge Microscopy (CEM) and head of the Graduate School for Cellular and Biomedical Sciences (GCB), and Marisa Moser, former administrative assistant of the MIC. Finally, two PhD students were awarded with their CEM PhD certificates. As usual, the MIC Research Day provided many opportunities for networking during the coffee break and the final apéro. We thank the CEM students for their help in the organization and acting as well-prepared chairpeople, all the participants for their interest in microscopy and the company sponsors for the generous financial support of the MIC Research Day 2019.
