III Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy Course

CNC,  Sep 18th - 22nd  2017


The Microscopy Imaging Center of Coimbra @ Center for Neuroscience and Cell Biology (MICC-CNC) is pleased to host the "III Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy Course" from September 18th-22nd, 2017.


This one-week intensive microscopy course will cover all aspects of the technology, from the principles of fluorescence imaging to multidimensional imaging in fixed and living samples.


Attendees will gain a theoretical understanding of state-of-the-art equipment used in quantitative fluorescence microscopy, as well as hands-on experience with: widefield microscopy, laser scanning and spinning disk confocal microscopy, multi-photon microscopy, deconvolution methods, and digital image processing and analysis.


Our goal is to provide attendees with the knowledge and expertise to implement cutting-edge microscopic methods within their own laboratories.

Students, fellows, technical staff and research scientists are welcome to attend the course.
