Microscopes have a dual life – they are among the most basic scientific instruments. They also are among the most sophisticated and complex – allowing us to study molecular interactions or track particle movements in 4 dimensions. The major theme of this presentation is how to use images to deliver your message clearly and concisely. We will discuss how microscopists acquire and choose images to effectively present their findings, and how to communicate with audiences having different levels of technical expertise. We will also touch on considerations about ethical image manipulation.
Bill Russin has over 30 years of experience using a wide variety of microscopy and imaging techniques. He is the Director of the Biological Imaging Facility, has taught microscopy and digital imaging courses at Northwestern and at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and is active in the microscopy community at both the local and national level.
Lunch will be served for the first 40 registrants who attend.
