PHOQUS held an Open Meeting at the West Park Conference Centre on 31st August 2017 where several of the ESRs gave oral presentations about their research activities. Presentations were given by:
‘Defocus on the details: label-free imaging of bundled, single, and dynamic microtubules’
‘Beyond the limits of photonic tweezers: optical manipulation of cells and tissues’
‘Super-resolution analysis of the human mitotic spindle’
‘The biomechanical properties of epithelial tissues in two and three dimensions’
‘Raman spectroscopy, a versatile tool for drug discovery’
‘Targeted in vivo fluorescent imaging of tumours overexpressing human vascular endothelial growth factor by hybrid ‘plastic antibodies’
‘LSFM for chick embryo’
‘Holographic endoscopy and its application to biophotonics’
All presentations were greatly appreciated.
The meeting was followed by a Drinks Reception and a Farewell Dinner which was very much enjoyed by all participants.
