The 2017 course, running from July 31st until August 4th, is now fully booked but you can join the waiting list or receive an alert when we re-open applications for 2018 by signing up at the RMS ESRIC Event Webpage.
Each year ESRIC plays host to its annual Super-Resolution Summer School, an advanced imaging training course which takes place over 5 days here in Edinburgh. The course is filled with informal talks from world renowned super-resolution professionals, paired with intensive technology workshops designed to allow participants to apply the theoretical knowledge they have gained and to quiz the application specialists about the practical aspects of performing super-resolution microscopy. The summer school covers all of the available super-resolution imaging systems including single molecule localisation, stimulated emission depletion and structured illumination microscopies. As well as the core workshops the course includes smaller 'bitesize' sessions to cover a broader range of expertise surrounding the acquisition which include sample preparation, analysis and standardisation.

The ESRIC Super-Resolution Summer School is aimed at researchers from PhD up to Professor who want to learn more about the techniques, how best to apply them to their research question and to meet fellow scientists in the super-resolution community to exchange knowledge and ideas. The networking aspect of the course is something we value when organising the event, delegates have ample time to connect through social events and also have time to get on-site advice regarding current projects, fields of interest and any other queries through Q&A sessions held throughout the week with our fantastic speakers.
The summer school is hosted by both the ESRIC facilities at Heriot-Watt University and the IGMM at Edinburgh University at the start of August each year and runs for 5 days. Anyone with prior knowledge of fluorescence microscopy is welcome to apply. The course is resedential as we welcome researchers from across the world each year. ESRIC runs this exciting opportunity in assossiation with several partners/sponsors and are honored to be working closely with the Royal MIcroscopial Society in organising our 2017 course and beyond.
More information on previous years summer school's can be found in the ESRIC News section of our website.
We are grateful to all of our sponsors who work very hard throughout the week in running workshops and who have helped us fund the course each year. Particular thank yous go to Olympus UK for getting the ESRIC Super-Resolution Summer School off the ground in 2014 and helping us make it a success; The RMS for their support and commitment in our future years and to the Wellcome Trust for their support in 2016 enabling us to support travel bursaries for post-doctorates.
