Imaging Africa workshop

Great initiative from the other side of the pond. Please forward to your imaging friends/colleagues working in African universities:

—————————————————–

We are pleased to announce Imaging Africa—a workshop initiative aimed at developing the microscopy knowledge and expertise of African life scientists.

Imaging Africa is an intensive, 4-day workshop + 1-day symposium focused on exposing students to a plethora of microscope technologies and impactful applications. Topics range from portable, cellphone-based microscopes to advanced super-resolution modalities. Furthermore, students will be introduced to experimental applications such as biosensors and optogenetic tools. These theoretical and practical classes will run in parallel with an in-depth quantitative image analysis course, which will provide the students with the skills necessary to reveal meaningful information from microscopy data.

With the generous support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Janelia Research Campus and UNC-Chapel Hill, the Imaging Africa workshop is free of financial burden to all attending students. The expenses associated with air travel, accommodation, and food will be covered by Imaging Africa. Eligible applicants must currently be at an academic institution in the continent of Africa.

The workshop will be hosted at the University of Cape Town’s Institute of Infectious Disease and Molecular Medicine, South Africa from the 13th to the 16th of January 2020 and will be followed by a research symposium on the 17th of January 2020. Please visit www.imagingafrica.org for more information. Applications for the workshop close on the 15th of October 2019.

Please help us in making a meaningful impact on African researchers by forwarding this information to your friends and colleagues from any and all African institutions.

Sincerely,

Neubias school for image analysis 2020

Neubias is a European effort to get biologists to analyse their images by locking them in a room with some image analysis experts. If you get accepted to the Neubias school, you get to learn image analysis on your own data and you get expert help to build your pipeline!

The next Neubias school will be in the beautiful city of Bordeaux in February 2020. Apply soon not to be disappointed! 🙂

Super resolution microscopy course and seminars at Scilife

Hi there!

Hans Blom and the Advanced Light Microscopy facility at Scilife organise one of their great super resolution microscopy course and a bunch of great seminars in September.

More information about the course and the seminar program (26th of september) can be found here.

See you all there! 😀

Lots of Image analysis courses in Uppsala! :)

Biovis is the image facility at Uppsala University, just a stone-throw away from us. Every year, they run several Image analysis courses, from short introductions to full blown courses.

Have a look here!

Antibody-based technologies at SciLife

Apply to this course at SciLife and learn about Antibody-based technologies on the 25th of March.

Image analysis primer or more!

Registrations are open now for 2 fantastic ways to reach the stars with your image analysis:

Ready? Get set! Go! 🙂

LCI microscopy course vintage 2019! :)

The Live Cell Imaging facility is back with its intensive microscopy course! In 2018 we moved to a new building so there was no course but we will strike again in Jan-Feb 2019!!You will definitely learn tons at our course. Have a look at the program and judge for yourself.

As usual we run 2 courses in parallel:

#2870, 6 points, is the full course with all lectures, workshops, demos… This will run 22/jan-08 feb, 3 days/week 9:00-17:15.

#2871, 4.5 points, is the same minus some workshops and demos. This course will run at the same dates but 10:00-15:00.

The rest of the time is used for home assignments.

All lectures are open to the public without any registration so tell your colleagues!

Course applications are open from today and until the 15th of November. The full course (2870) has only 16 spots available so just go for it NOW! 🙂

 

Clearing and expansion microscopy course at Scilife in September!

Expansion microscopy and clearing are fantastic tools for anyone who images thick (> 1 cell diameter) fixed samples. We are now lucky to have access to state of the art talks and hands-on workshops at Scilife in September. Register early not to be disappointed!

Please apply to Hans (first day) and David (second day) directly!

Scilife super res course

Super resolution course early February at Scilife with great presentations accessible to everyone! I will go to the DNA-paint talk! 🙂

Check it out here.

Alyona’s videos

Alyona Minina from the Confocal microscopy facility at SLU came up with really nice videos about Zen and how to use Zeiss confocals

Have a look!
