18th European Light Microscopy Initiative Meeting
University College Dublin, Ireland, 5 - 8 June 2018

Professor Scott E Fraser Confirmed as elmi2018 Keynote Speaker

We are really excited to share with you that Professor Scott E Fraser of the University of Southern California will be joining us in Dublin next year as the elmi2018 Plenary Speaker.

Scott-FraserProfessor Fraser will open elmi2018 on the evening of Tuesday 5 June, following the Core Facilities satellite meeting earlier in the day.

Professor Scott E. Fraser is an expert in quantitative biology, applying the tools of chemistry, engineering, and physics to problems in biology and medicine. His personal research centres on imaging and molecular analyses of intact biological systems, with an emphasis on early development, organogenesis, and medical diagnostics.

After training in physics and biophysics he joined the faculty at the University of California, Irvine, and rose through the ranks to become Chair of the Department of Physiology and Biophysics. In 1990 he moved to Caltech to serve as the Anna L. Rosen Professor of Biology, and the Director of the Biological Imaging Centre. He is deeply committed to interdisciplinary training and translational research, having helped found the Caltech Brain Imaging Center and the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, as well as serving as the Director of the Rosen Center for Biological Engineering.

In the autumn of 2012, he moved to the University of Southern California (USC) to take a Provost Professorship in the Dornsife College of Letters Arts and Sciences, the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Keck School of Medicine and the Viterbi School of Engineering. He remains active in interdisciplinary research and serves as the Director of Science Initiatives for the USC campuses.

Professor Fraser currently uses a range of technologies in his work from conventional light microscopy and laser scanning microscopy, to optical coherence tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) microscopy. We can’t wait to hear him speak at elmi2018 next June!
