The 3rd ESRIC Super-Resolution Summer School ran from the 8th-12th of August 2016, we welcomed another exemplary set of speakers and industry partners, making for a microscope-fun-filled week!


Hosted at Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh, our science careers day was a success! It allowed ESRIC employees to show what careers can be accessed from a science based degree and encourage pupils to encourage their enthusiasm for the sciences.


Heriot Watt has hosted the Photonex conference for the last three consectutive years and it is a fantastic way for ESRIC to see the new microscopic systems being offered by a range of companies. Also we can keep up-to-date with the latest changes and developments in super-resolution microscopy.


Super-resolution microscopy allows for us to take incredible photographs of cells and sub cellular structures. In 2014 we had to oppourtunity to share these photographs with the public during our ''living lights'' exhibition. Free to the public, it was a great way to showcase our work to people who may not get the chance to see it any other way.


HRH Princess Anne visited the ESRIC facilities at Heriot Watt in 2014. There she was shown several microscopic systems and even had a go at viewing biological samples under the lens! 


ESRIC was delighted to have Nobel prize winner Dr Eric Betzig to come visit us during the 2015 Summer School and deliver a fasciating public lecture to a packed out 300-seater auditorium.
