Single Molecule Workshop
27th International Workshop on
“Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy”
September 7 - 9, 2022, Berlin, Germany
85 scientists attended PicoQuant's 27th International Workshop on „Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy“ from September 7 to 9 in Berlin. For many participants, it was the first in-person event since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, a greatly appreciated chance to share and discuss exciting scientific developments face to face again. The topics presented in 33 talks and on 36 posters ranged from novel imaging modalities to in vivo protein studies, from new microscopy instrumentation to emerging single-photon emitters.
As nurturing young scientists is important to PicoQuant, we host a competition for the “Best Student Talk” at every Single Molecule Workshop. Congratulations to the winners:
Michael Isselstein, LMU Munich, Germany
"Linker Molecules Convert Commercial Fluorophores into Tailored Functional probes during Bio-Labeling"
Cindy Close, LMU Munich, Germany
"Docking-Site-Mediated Photostabilization for Super-Resolution Imaging"
Oliver Stach, University of Zurich, Switzerland
"Dissecting the complex dynamics of protein-RNA interactions with singlemolecule
For the first time, attendees voted for the best invited lecture as well: congratulations to Viktorija Glembockyte, who presented „DNA origami tools for single molecule sensing“ during the Young Stars Session.
Revealing our new Single Photon Counting Confocal Microscope Luminosa
A special program highlight was the launch of PicoQuant's new Single Photon Counting Confocal Microscope Luminosa. Product Manager Dr. Evangelos Sisamakis and Head of Systems Development Dr. Felix Koberling presented Luminosa to the public for the first time ever on Wednesday afternoon. Excitement was high, live demo slots on Thursday and Friday were quickly booked up and we were happy to receive a lot of positive feedback afterwards.
Next workshop (preliminary date)
