The 2019 MSC-SMC Annual Meeting will be held between May 22nd and 24th in scenic Vancouver, British Columbia. The goals of the MSC-SMC Annual Meeting are to bring together junior and senior researchers working in the field of imaging in Canada and abroad, to develop a strong network between imaging researchers in Canada, and to learn about exciting new research. The main conference venue for the 2019 meeting will be the Life Sciences Centre (LSC) at the University of British Columbia (UBC). The local organizers have invited an exciting line up of speakers to lead symposiums on light and electron microscopy in both the physical and biological sciences.
