BioCity Symposium

“Seeing the invisible”

August 23rd – 24th, 2018
Mauno Conference Center, BioCity, Turku

We have made major breakthroughs in the last decade when it comes to unravelling the concealed mysteries of cell biology using sophisticated microscopy approaches. The BioCity symposium 2018 “Seeing the Invisible” will highlight some examples of these fundamental cellular and molecular discoveries, spanning topics from basic cell biology to immunology, cancer and neurobiology. The symposium will, through these seminal discoveries, also emphasise the evolution and range of imaging techniques that continue to bring these innovations to light.
