2nd Olympus Discovery Summit Connects Microscopists to Advance Research and Imaging

publication date: Oct 18, 2021
author/source: Olympus Europa Holding GmbH



The second Olympus Discovery Summit—a free two-day event—will take place on October 26–27, 2021. Centered on the theme Advance Your Imaging, microscopists can connect with their peers during two full days of virtual presentations to discuss how they are using imaging techniques to advance their research.


Using Microscopy Imaging to Advance Research

After a successful first summit in April 2021 that concentrated on moving forward in a post-pandemic world, the second Olympus Discovery Summit will focus on how microscopy imaging can advance research. Presentation topics include the use of complementary imaging technologies to understand the immune system, deconvolution techniques to improve image quality, 3D imaging, how AI is helping researchers analyze large amounts of microscopy image data and more.
