This intensive course of one week is organised by the Erasmus Optical Imaging Centre. It gives an overview of the rapidly developing advanced fluorescence imaging methods and how they are used in biomedical research. An important part is the practical work each afternoon in which you get the opportunity for real hands-on experience. The focus of the practicals is on functional imaging (time lapse, FRAP, FRET) and super resolution (SIM, STED and single molecule tracking).
To get insight in and hands-on experience with advanced fluorescence imaging methods and data analysis
The following topics will be covered during the course:
Hands-on Practical Work
Confocal Microscopy & Live Cell Imaging
FRET, FRAP, TIRF, FLIM
Super Resolution (SIM, STED, PALM/STORM, Rescan)
Introduction to Confocal Microscopy
Time Lapse Imaging
Super Resolution Imaging (SIM, STED, PALM/STORM/Localisation Mic., Rescan, lightsheet)
This five day course consists of lecture sessions in the morning and practical sessions in the afternoon. On Monday and Thursday there are also evening sessions with dinner. In the final session on Friday afternoon participants present and discuss the results of one of the topics during the practical work.
