Date: 21 March, 2023

Time: 09:30-20:30 CET

Location: Hotel NH Noordwijk Conference Centre Leeuwenhorst (Langelaan 3, 2211 XT Noordwijkerhout, Netherlands)

Celebrating 10+ years of leadership in the spatial biology field, we are launching our first ever School of SCOPE. Join us in Noordwijkerhout for a one-day event, bringing together academic and industrial RNAscope users and those new to the technology, to advance your spatial biology insights.

What to Expect

  • Learn about the latest innovative RNAscope ISH Technology applications (RNAscope, BaseScope, miRNAscope, etc.) in our keynote presentations, breakout sessions, and masterclasses
  • Lunch, dine and network with experts in the spatial biology field and our RNAscope ISH Technology partners
  • Get tips and tricks for assay troubleshooting and image analysis in our RNAscope ISH start-up workshops
  • Opportunities to present your RNAscope ISH Technology research in our poster sessions and win our innovation award and/or best poster prize
  • Receive a School of SCOPE Certificate of Attendance

Who Should Attend

School of Scope 2023 is the ideal training event for those new to spatial technology, as well as experienced RNAscope academic and industry users looking to expand their knowledge, share expertise, and learn with other researchers.
