Gethin Owen, BSc

Gethin has 20 years of experience working with Scanning and Transmission Electron Microscopes for researching the mechanism of cell adhesion specializing in sample preparation and state of the art imaging techniques in 3D.  After formal training in Biological Electron Microscopy (MSc 1995) he has been actively involved in the setup of 3 new imaging labs at the postgraduate level in Switzerland, USA and Canada. During these times he began to realize that there are many factors other than resolution to consider when testing machines and developed an unbiased testing template for purchasing instruments. He has applied this template to successfully purchase instrumentation at the Centre for High Throughput Phenogenomics, UBC, Vancouver, Canada where he is currently the Technical Director of EM.
