Course Basic Microscopy ‘In the footsteps of Antoni van Leeuwenhoek’ – April 16 – 20, 2018

There are still a few spots open for this course! Deadline to register is April 2, 2018!

This course teaches you the application of a range of imaging possibilities within the Centre for Microscopy at the AMC, the VUmc and the NKI-AvL. They are presented in lectures, discussions and hands-on demonstrations. The individual research projects of the attending participants will be discussed in relation to the demonstrated techniques, allowing exchange of ideas with fellow participants and microscopy experts and operators. The course is a guide to implement cellular imaging in your own research project. A part of the participants could bring their sample for analysis after consulting with the organization first.
Topics covered include: basic principles of microscopy and confocal laser scanning microscopy, specimen preparation and staining methods, quantitative analysis of microscopic images (e.g. Image J), electron microscopy techniques, Imagestream, ultramicroscoop and 2-photon, live cell imaging (e.g. inverted automated fluorescence and Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence)
