Up and Coming Techniques in Medical Physics Translated into Clinical Practice 2019

Location: London

Date: 2nd Dec 2019

Cost: See site

The IOP’s Medical Physics Group welcomes you to its 7th annual scientific and networking meeting, which aims to bring together people from all areas of Medical Physics and discuss potential collaborations. Our speakers will discuss the translation of new innovative development in Medical Physics into clinical practice and the processes involved in bringing new technology into clinical use.

Dynamic in-situ microscopy relating structure and function

Location: London

Date: 21-22 Oct

Cost: Free

Fast-track discussion meeting organised by Dame Pratibha Gai FREng FRS, Professor Edward Boyes, Professor Rik Brydson and Professor Richard Catlow FRS.

This meeting will evidence and advance development in dynamic in-situ environmental electron, scanning probe, optical and fast time resolved microscopy and computer modelling studies of vital interest in the chemical, physical and life sciences, underpinning technologies of high commercial and societal value. It will focus on the pivotal role of imaging and spectroscopy for dynamic processes across the sciences to access previously invisible aspects of real world processes.

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Speaker abstracts are also available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place.

10-Day Practical Course on Advanced Optical Microscopy for Cell Biology 25th March-04 April

Location: Plymouth

The 15th EMBO Practical Course on Advanced Optical Microscopy for Cell Biology was once more held in the historic Marine Biological Association (MBA) on Citadel Hill, Plymouth, overlooking the sea. This immersive 10-day practical course attracted early career researchers, facility managers and industry-based microscopists from across Europe from a variety of fields spanning biologists, physicists, chemists and mathematicians. Year-after-year the course hosts invited speakers from across the globe who are leaders in their field to lecture on all things microscopy.

The Quantitative Systems Biology Workshop 28th-29th October 2019

Location: London

The Quantitative Systems Biology Workshop 2019 is a free event running on 28th October at the Strand Campus. The topics this year are phase transitions and inference in biological problems, namely: gene regulation, developmental biology, immunology, self-assembly, and biological membranes. The programme includes key speakers and a poster session. We will also be hosting a student networking event the following day, where students are encouraged to give a short talk in a more informal environment.

IAFIG-RMS: Bioimage Analysis with Python 9th-13th December 2019

Location: Cambridge

The aim of this 5 days course is to develop motivated participants toward becoming independent BioImage Analysts in an imaging facility or research role. Participants will be taught theory and algorithms relating to bioimage analysis using Python as the primary coding language.
Lectures will focus on image analysis theory and applications. Topics to be covered include Image Analysis and image processing, Python and Jupyter notebooks, Visualisation, Fiji to Python, Segmentation, Omero and Python, Image Registration, Colocalisation, Time-series analysis, Tracking, Machine Learning, and Applied Machine Learning.
The bulk of the practical work will focus on Python and how to code algorithms and handle data using Python. Fiji will be used as a tool to facilitate image analysis. Omero will be described and used for some interactive coding challenges.

Research spotlight talks will demonstrate research of instructors/scientists using taught techniques in the wild.

This event is organized in collaboration with the Image Analysis Focused Interest Group and is sponsored by the Royal Microscopical Society.

Learning How Large Facilities Can Help Image Musculoskeletal Processes - 10th September

ImagingBioPro Network is organising a workshop at Diamond Light Source (Harwell Campus) on “Learning How Large Facilities Can Help Image Musculoskeletal (MSK) Processes” . The workshop will introduce the capabilities of the UK’s Large Imaging Facilities (Diamond Light Source (DLS)Central Laser Facility (CLS) and ISIS Neutron Source) to MSK biologists, medics, engineers and other researchers.

Facility scientists will provide an overview of applicable techniques and existing users will present case studies of the state-of-the-art applications. You will be able to discuss potential applications with the experts in facilitated discussions.

The workshop also includes guided visits to DLS, CLS, ISIS, as well as, Electron Physical Sciences Imaging Centre and Electron Bio-Imaging Centre (ePSIC/eBIC).

SLAS 2019 Advanced 3D Human Models and High-Content Analysis Symposium - 21-22 October

Francis Crick Institute, London


There is increasing interest in the use of 3D systems in both discovery and applied research. But how appropriate or successful are the use of these systems in these areas and what still needs to be improved in order for such approaches to be more widely adopted? The SLAS 2019 Advanced 3D Human Models and High-Content Analysis Symposium focuses on four distinct, yet interrelated, aspects. You will hear from experts in their fields about current and near-future enabling technologies, applications of such systems in high-throughput screening, advances in imaging and analysis of data generated in these systems and the expansion into novel model systems. This symposium aims to include not just the current successes but also what the current limitations and opportunities are in this rapidly expanding field.

Benefits to attendees include:
•    Network with members of the global life sciences community
•    Compare and benchmark your operations against best practices
•    Learn about innovative technologies that will transform your practices
•    See examples of successful collaboration with external and internal partners
•    Grow professionally through presenting your work in a podium or poster presentation
