Bioscience Lites - Scanning Electron Microcopy & Autophagy
Discover how state-of-the-art microscopy techniques are used to research autophagy (cell cannibalism) which plays an important role in normal biology and can become deregulated during ageing or disease. Presentations on scanning electron microscopy by Simon Walker - Head of our Imaging Facility - and Oliver Florey - from our Signalling programme - will be followed by Q&A and a visit to our Imaging Facility for an overview of confocal and scanning electron microscopy.
Bioscience LITE is a series of free twilight teacher training events hosted by the Wellcome Genome Campus and the Babraham Institute to explore some of the big topics in bioscience. These sessions will provide you with updates from scientists on contemporary bioscience, access to some of our scientific facilities and introduce you to resources that can be used in the classroom.
