Abstract: Join Zoom Meeting https://embl-de.zoom.us/j/93435371196 Meeting ID: 934 3537 1196 Password: 544428 Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) strategies such as PALM (Betzig et al. 2006; Hess et al. 2006), STORM (Rust et al 2006, Bates et al. 2007, Heilemann, M. et al. 2008) and PAINT (Sharonov, A. & Hochstrasser 2006) have become game changers in numerous biological studies aiming to visualize structures at the nanoscale. SMLM offers indeed among the best 3D spatial resolutions: single molecules can be spatially located with a quasi-isotropic 3D precision of ~10-nm, either with an accuracy 20 and 50 times greater than the diffraction limit, in xy and in z respectively. Furthermore, SMLM is intrinsically quantitative as it relies on detecting, localizing, and counting molecules, thus offering a unique optical method capable of performing proper metrology at the nanoscale (Möckl L. and Moerner WE. 2020). However, SMLM lacks straightforward multi-color capability, which is crucial to tackle most biological questions. This issue is addressed within abbelight solutions by implementing a spectral demixing strategy allowing 3D simultaneous multi-color nanoscopy. This SMLM modality is available in abbelight’s highest range product SAFe 360 which is currently available at the ALMF for testing.

Abstract: There is much concern about the public regard for standards and norms of evidence and anxiety that carefully assembled facts and data are becoming seemingly dispensable. In 2016, ‘post-truth’ officially entered the dictionary; in the years since, commentators have worried that societies are no longer interested in the carefully assembled data and conclusions of scientific inquiry. Across Europe, conferences have sprung up among research and regulatory bodies asking how to operate in a world of Facebook filter bubbles and alternative facts. Amid this anxiety, we are in danger of seeing only memes that reinforce it, of believing that people just hear what they are already disposed to hear, that there is no scope for persuasion and factual credibility is pointless. Sense about Science’s experience of working with the public tells a different story - in fact, many different stories, of the public interest in sound science and evidence. That interest in science and evidence is borne out in surveys: scientists are still trusted to tell the truth and are the only group to enjoy consistently strong public trust since the 1970s. In the UK, an Ipsos MORI 2016 poll found that 86% of people want the government to consult experts on complex subjects. Working with the public reminds us that monitoring and analysing are key to public empowerment and democratic accountability; and it expands our imagination about how researchers can collaborate with the public more effectively. Sense about Science's public-led, expert-fed approach has served up some interesting lessons for discussion. The question before the research world therefore is how to equip people to make sense of their natural and social systems: how can we truly embark on those journeys together, with the public and in the public interest?
