GWNIC Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy Workshop

With an Emphasis on Biological Samples

The George Washington University (GW) Nanofabrication and Imaging Center (GWNIC) presents a five-day correlative microscopy workshop.

Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy Samples

Register to Attend


This five-day workshop will cover:

  • correlating large-area images of the same sample from light and electron microscopes;

  • strategies for sample preparation suitable for both light and electron microscopy;

  • real-world workflows, including cell and resin embedding imaging;

  • how to handle complex modern microscopes with multiple modalities;

  • image data fusion, including management of data and large image sets;

  • state-of-the-art instrumentation and new developments coming to market; and

  • 3D electron microscopy, including VolumeScope and FIBSEM.

The main theme of this workshop is correlating large-area images of the same sample created with both light and high-resolution electron microscopy.

The workshop will be geared towards microscopists who are interested in learning new techniques for special projects or who are in the market for new instruments, particularly neuroscientists or anatomists who are interested in utilizing large area imaging in their research.

Numerous vendors will demonstrate their instruments.
