It is time to enroll to the yearly light microscopy course run by the Live Cell imaging core facility (29 Jan – 17 Feb 2024): ‘Microscopy: improve your imaging skills – from sample preparation to image analysis’ (6 credits).
- Check the course schedule 2024 and the syllabus to see the course content and alumni testimonies.
- Postdocs or registered PhD students can apply to the course.
- Please read carefully the eligibility criteria in the syllabus and note that the last registration date is the 15th of November.
- If you cannot apply to the course, you can anyway follow any of the lectures (in blue on the schedule) as they will be publicly broadcasted live on Zoom and accessible to anyone without registration. 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.
