Registration to the LCI microscopy course 2023 closes on Monday!

It is time to enroll to the yearly light microscopy course run by the Live Cell imaging core facility (30 Jan – 17 Feb 2023): Microscopy: improve your imaging skills – from sample preparation to image analysis’ (6 credits).

  • Check the course schedule to see the course content and testimonies from alumni
  • If interested, you can enrol as a studentPlease read carefully the eligibility criteria and note that the last registration date is the 15th of November.

Additionally, all the lectures (in blue on the schedule) will be publicly broadcasted live on Zoom and accessible to anyone without registration. Even if you do not want to enrol as a student, you can have a look at the and listen to any lecture that triggers your interest. There is no need to register. The schedule and zoom link are on the course page.

The purpose of this course is to enable PhD students and researchers who have already and recently used a microscope to acquire images of fluorescent samples, to improve their microscopy skills.
The course is NOT aimed at training people to use the LCI facility microscopes. The focus is instead on providing the students with enough theoretical and practical knowledge about their OWN sample and their OWN microscope, to enable them to:

1) prepare their sample and formulate their scientific question in a way that is suitable for data extraction from fluorescence images

2) properly use the hardware available in their lab/facility and 3) fully understand each parameter they need to set in the software in their lab/facility.

The aim is to provide the course students with the tools to acquire on ANY wide field, confocal or light sheet microscope, images of their samples that reliably answer their scientific question.
