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.”

A stellar flare 10 times more powerful than anything seen on our sun has burst from an ultracool star almost the same size as Jupiter
A localization phenomenon boosts the accuracy of solving quantum many-body problems with quantum computers which are otherwise challenging for conventional computers. This brings such digital quantum simulation within reach on quantum devices available today.
Quantum computers promise to solve certain computational problems exponentially faster than any classical machine. “A particularly promising application is the...
