Welcome

Dear friends and colleagues,

We warmly welcome you to the GBM Compact Conference 2024 in Frankfurt.

Our understanding of cellular structures and functions advanced tremendously over the recent years owing to many developments in imaging technologies. These breakthroughs made biochemistry and molecular cell biology visual!

The second GBM Compact meeting in Frankfurt will present examples of impressive possibilities in cellular imaging, covering novel approaches in light and electron microscopy as well as image analysis. Still, the main focus will be on the biology and biochemistry that we can ‘see’ now for the first time.

 

In addition to excellent invited speakers, there will be slots for short talks selected from abstracts.

Moreover, workshops on specific methods in imaging, image processing and analysis will be integrated into the compact 24 h program, which will be tailored to different groups of participants to make the meeting exciting not only for microscopy experts but also for students, postdocs and non-microscopists.

We look forward to seeing you in Frankfurt!
