Dear All

Registration is now open for Cryogenic Preparation and Imaging Strategies for Soft Matter in Materials Science taking place at Queen Mary University, London on 24 February 2017.

This will be the first of the new Focus Lecture Series as part of the Microscopy Characterization of Organic-Inorganic Interfaces Meeting taking place the day before also at QMUL, http://www.rms.org.uk/discover-engage/event-calendar/microscopy-characterization-2017.html
Organised by the Royal Microscopical Society together with The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel, this lecture series will focus on applied electron microscopy for the characterization of hydrated samples (hydrogels, colloids, hydrated polymers, polymer-peptide hybrids, scaffolds for cell culture evaluations) using cryo-preservation and characterization of materials in their pristine/life-like state. Several techniques that have been well established in life sciences research will be presented in the context of materials science.
