Big Ben 1 official FOM 2019 image DSC06255 (1)Focus on Microscopy 2019 is the continuation of a yearly conference series presenting the latest innovations in optical microscopy and their application in biology, medicine and the material sciences. Key subjects for the conference series are the theory and practice of 3D optical imaging, related 3D image processing, and reporting especially on developments in resolution and imaging modalities. The conference series covers also the rapidly advancing fluorescence labeling techniques for confocal and multi-photon 3D imaging of -live- biological specimens.


Typical topics of the upcoming FOM conference will include:

  • Theory and practice of confocal and multiphoton-excitation microscopy
  • Super-resolution, nanoscopy imaging: from PSF engineering (4pi, SIM, STED), fluorescent activation/quenching, stochastic/centroid (PALM, STORM, GSDIM, SOFI and related techniques) to TIRF
  • 3D and 4D live cell and tissue imaging
  • Adaptive optics for microscopy
  • Light sheet microscopy
  • Phase/interference based microscopies
  • OCT, holographic, endoscopy
  • Advanced fluorescence imaging/spectroscopy: FRET, FRAP, FLIM, FCS, SOFI
  • New fluorescence probes, proteins, quantum dots, single molecule imaging
  • Clearing and expansion techniques
  • Coherent non-linear microscopies: SHG, THG, SFG, CARS
  • Multi-dimensional fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy imaging
  • Correlated microscopies, light/electron, et al.
  • Laser manipulation and tracking, photo-activation
  • Fast acquisition, automated and high-content microscopy
  • 3D image processing and visualization for multidimensional data

A technical exhibition will be an integral part of the upcoming FOM conference.

Welcoming you to London for the FOM2019 conference and exhibition are the FOM2019 organisers:

  • Peter Török, Imperial College London, United Kingdom
