Imaging Africa Microscopy Club

A Continent-wide Journal Club

Join us for an online journal club hosted by imaging experts from around the globe. This weekly event will focus on showcasing interesting and powerful applications of microscopy in answering biological questions. Each week, a core research paper that exemplifies the utility and application of microscopy and imaging will be discussed. Key emphasis will be placed on understanding the principles of the technique as well as discussing the justification of its use. See the schedule below.
