Specialist Course on Light and Fluorescence Microscopy


A specialist Course on Light and Fluorescence Microscopy will be organized by the Centre for advanced light microscopy.
Specialist Course on Light and Fluorescence Microscopy
Light microscopy, and especially fluorescence microscopy, is an essential tool to investigate and characterize biological specimen in the life sciences. Modern microscopes offer an increasing range of technical capabilities, but thereby become gradually more complex and require appropriate training for correct scientific use. This specialist course provides doctoral students with limited experience in microscopic imaging with the understanding and skills that are needed to perform light and confocal imaging at a research-grade level. The course will be taught by several experts in the field and offers both theoretical lectures and practical courses. The most frequently employed light microscopy techniques will be discussed, complemented by an introduction to image processing. The instrumentation of the UGent Centre for Advanced Light Microscopy will be available for the practical sessions, allowing the participants to become acquainted with the instrumentation that is available at UGent and which may be of use in their research projects.
