2020 MSC·SMC Symposium

2020 MSC·SMC Symposium

June 1-5 2020
Sherbrooke, QC

The 2020 MSC·SMC Symposium will be held between June 1st and 5th in Sherbrooke, Québec. The goals of the MSC-SMC Symposium 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.

  • Expecting over 150 participants from across Canada and the US

  • Canada Microscopy event of the year

  • Opportunity to meet decision makers like principle investigators and core facility directors

  • Impact the next generation as we expect 40% of the audience to be students and trainees


Confirmed Keynote Speakers at the MSC 2020

Dr. Teng-Leong Chew

Dr. Chew is the Director of the Advanced Imaging Center at Janelia Research Campus, Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Ashburn, Virginia. He is a world-renowned leader on emerging microscopy technologies and a promoter of the Janelia Advanced Imaging Center to make cutting-edge imaging technologies developed in their Center such as super-resolution 3D microscopy and multimodal optical scope with adaptive image correction widely accessible at no cost to scientists around the world before the instruments are commercially available. His research team combines some of these technologies to study the architecture, functional states, and regulatory interactions of biologically and medically relevant cellular processes.

Dr. Maximilian Haider

Dr. Haider is an honorary professor at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology; co-founder, senior advisor and former president of Corrected Electron Optical Systems GmbH, a German company that manufactures correction components for electron microscopes. Dr. Haider is widely accepted as the inventor of the aberration corrector, a special lens designed to cancel the main optical defect that limited the transmission electron microscopy resolution. His work allowed electron microscopes to achieve a three-fold improvement of the resolution, down to about 50 pm, comparable to the radius of the smallest atom.

Dr. John Spence

Will present the closing lecture of the MSC2020 Conference. Professor Spence is the Richard Snell Professor of Physics and a Regents Professor at Arizona State University. He is also the director of science for the NSF BioXFEL Science and Technology Center on the application of X-Ray Free-electron lasers to structural biology, a consortium of seven top U.S. universities devoted to the development and application of hard X-ray lasers to biology. Dr. Spence has received numerous prestigious awards. He served on Scientific Advisory Committees at Lawrence Berkley National Laboratories and was a member of the Department of Energy Committee for a decade. He was chair of the International Union of Crystallography Commission (IUCr) on Electron Diffraction, a member of the IUCr commission on Charge, Spin and Momentum densities.
