Monday 2 and Tuesday 3 September
Pre-conference short courses on advanced topics in electron microscopy

Before the conference starts organisers will be running three short courses on advanced topics in electron microscopy. These courses will be suitable for all those with some experience in electron microscopy who wish to enhance their knowledge with specific training beyond what may be readily available within most University Graduate School Programmes. They will be particularly useful for postgraduate students or early career researchers engaged in research programmes that may require access to the latest techniques in electron microscopy.
