This year marks the 25th anniversary of PicoQuant’s annual workshop on “Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Super-resolution Microscopy in the Life Sciences”. The celebratory event, taking place in Berlin from September 3 to 6, 2019, features talks by some of the most renowned and inspiring scientists from the field of single molecule research. Four keynote lectures will be held by Nobel laureates Stefan Hell (Max-Plank-Institute, Germany) and W. E. Moerner (Stanford University, USA) as well as by Xiaoliang Sunney Xie (Harvard University, USA and Peking University, China) and Toshio Yanagida (Osaka University, Japan).

The anniversary program includes 4 keynote lectures, 23 invited and 33 contributed talks as well as poster sessions with over 100 contributions. As Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of PicoQuant, explains: “The workshop is an outstanding opportunity to meet not only famous scientists and establish new cooperations but also to discuss latest results with many bright students. With a dedicated ’student award‘ we encourage students to present their work in front of this prestigious international audience. 30 percent of the time slots has been exclusively reserved for students”. The program is rounded out by a dinner party at the stadium of the 1. FC Union Berlin, the “Alte Försterei” as well as an Open Afternoon for the public with a lecture by Nobel prize winner Stefan Hell.

After its first edition in 1995, this workshop has established itself as a worldwide leading venue and interdisciplinary platform for exchanging experiences, information, and recent findings in the field of ultrasensitive optical detection down to the single molecule level as well as beyond the classical diffraction limit in microsocpy. The workshop addresses researchers and associated professionals from diverse fields including physics, chemistry, biology, as well as life and materials science.
