We would like to announce the course “Basics in fluorescence microscopy”, organised by the van Leeuwenhoek Centre for Advanced Microscopy from the University of Amsterdam, February 6th-9th 2018.
This is a 4-days basic microscopy course for graduate students, postdocs and lab technicians in biology, biophysics and (bio)medicine. It provides detailed knowledge of the working principles of confocal and widefield fluorescence imaging, with special emphasis on experiment related issues, such as optical aberrations, bleaching, specimen preparation and fluorescent probes. The course integrates theoretical lectures with hands-on experiments and data analysis. Experts in the field of microscopy will give an overview of “state-of-the-art” imaging techniques in biological research. For more info, program and application form check www.microscopycourse.nl
