This one-week intensive microscopy course will cover all aspects of the technology from the principles 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.
A signature component of this course is the availability of microscopy equipment and teaching representatives from leading manufacturers.
Our goal is to provide students with the knowledge and expertise to implement cutting-edge microscopic methods within their own laboratories.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the course is filled, at which time a waiting list will be maintained.
This course is now full. Applications are being accepted for consideration in 2019.
Tuition $3,200.00 USD
