CoMPLEX Annual Meeting 2009

The Limits of Perception: Challenges for Biological Imaging

CoMPLEX is UCL's centre for interdisciplinary research in the life and medical sciences.  This year's annual conference recognizes the vital role of imaging in all aspects of biological research, from testing models to finding new structures.  We have brought together an exceptionally talented set of speakers who will cover all length scales from single molecules to cell networks and ecosystems.  Our emphasis is on future challenges and exciting prospects that are currently... at the limits of perception. We hope you can join us!
