The Microscopical Society of Ireland’s 32nd Annual Symposium takes place from 20 to 22 August in the School of Biological Sciences in the Medical Biology Centre.
It aims to inform, educate and support those who use any form of microscopy in their work, whether in the field of academia or industry.
Among the speakers will be Professor Aaron Maule, a professor of Molecular Parasitology in the School of Biological Sciences at Queen’s.
Professor Maule has recently been awarded the Bueding-von Brand Award from the American Society of Parasitologists in Texas. He was praised for “his outstanding contribution and scientific discoveries in the field of novel drug target research in helminth parasites”.
His presentation on Friday will be on Bioimaging as a tool to probe worm biology.Also speaking at the conference will be Professor Paul Verkade, from the University of Bristol, a well known expert in cryomicroscopy - a technique which combines the dynamic images of the light microscope with the high resolution of the electron microscope. When it is used with a high pressure freezing technique, it allows scientists to see intracellular processes.
“The symposium provides an excellent for young researchers to present their data at a conference and we’re delighted it’s being held at Queen’s.”

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
