“Trends in Microscopy” (TIM) is an international meeting series supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The TIM will be hosted by the Center for Advanced Imaging (CAi) at Heinrich-Heine University Duesseldorf and is co-organized by the CECAD Imaging Facility of the University of Cologne. In 2018, the TIM is for the first time the biennial meeting of the newly founded “German BioImaging-Gesellschaft für Mikroskopie und Bildanalyse e.V.” (German BioImaging-Society for Microscopy and Image Analysis, GerBI-GMB).

Modern microscopy techniques are essential tools of growing impact in the modern life sciences. The rapidly evolving field of emerging techniques and new applications challenges researchers to keep pace. The meeting series “Trends in Microscopy“ constitutes an effective meeting point for developers, users and suppliers playing an important role in disseminating information about new technical developments and applications.

The focus of the TIM 2018 will be put on the combination of imaging techniques, as well as on the combination of imaging with techniques from other fields, like mass spectrometry to gain more insight into cellular processes.
