From October 23 to 24, 2018, the Collaborative Research Center 1286 organizes a symposium on “Advanced Microscopy & Biomedicine meets NanoSIMS”. The event is characterized by a large number of national speakers who will present their research work in connection with novel imaging techniques. Lectures from the area of ​​the NanoSIMS methodology are to be expected. They will show both an applicability in the biomedicine as well as in combination with the high-resolution light and electron microscopy.
