ZEISS Microscopy

ZEISS Microscopy Symposium of the Microverse Cluster Jena

November 24th, 2020 - Jena, Germany

The Microscopy Symposium will bring together researchers from the “Microverse” and experts from ZEISS Microscopy. From basic microscopy to multi-scale and multi-modal workflows. Convince yourself in lectures and discussions how your work can benefit from latest advances in microscopy. ZEISS experts will support you in finding the best solution for your application.

We are proud to welcome Prof. Dr. Anthony A. Hyman for the keynote lecture „Cajal Revisited: Condensates in Physiology and Disease".

Jena is a traditional location for optical high-tech industry. The exchange of knowledge between science and ZEISS has a long history for more than 170 years. The “Balance of the Microverse” is a Cluster of Excellence at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena. It is funded by the German Research Foundation under Germany's Excellence Strategy and offers innovative solutions for fighting disease.

Join our symposium and imaging experiments in 2020. Take the chance to expand and strengthen your network.
