The mix of speakers from a range of disciplines from Biochemistry, Biophysics and the clinical sciences created a truly interdisciplinary environment, with work presented on a range of fields with microscopy at the core. The afternoon was well attended by researchers from Edinburgh and further afield and gave a great opportunity for networking and knowledge exchange within the micrscopy community. The IGMM's new DragonFly system by Andor was demonstrated throughout the afternoon - looking forward to seeing some exciting data coming from that soon!
