This one-week, intensive microscopy course will cover all aspects of the technology from the principals of fluorescence imaging to multidimensional imaging in living cells. Lectures dealing with the theory, mechanics, and application of fluorescent imaging methods will be intermingled with extended laboratory practicals in which students will be encouraged to use their own specimens to optimize the utility of the course. Our goal is to provide students with the knowledge and expertise to implement cutting-edge microscopic methods within their own laboratories.
