We cordially invite you to an interesting fluorescence microscopy workshop on September 5 to 7, 2018.

What you will learn?

  • an intro to microscopy, including aberrations and artifacts in multicolor microscopy.
  • an intro to methods that quantify molecular interactions, from simple co-localization analysis to the state of the art in super-resolution or whole-organism imaging.
  • applications of the different methods to research questions from the life sciences

What will you practice?

  • Different hands-on sessions on fluctuation spectroscopy (FCS, RICS, ICS), light sheet microscopy, super-resolution (PALM/STORM/SOFI/SIM), fluorescence lifetime & anisotropy imaging
  • Advanced data analysis with different user-friendly packages for FLIM, FCS/RICS, SOFI, SIM analysis

The program is available here

Supported by

  • Hasselt Doctoral School
  • Leica Microsystems GmbH
  • Carl Zeiss Microscopy GmbH
  • Sercolab

Local organizing committee

  • Prof. Jelle Hendrix and co-workers
  • Prof. Marcel Ameloot, Dr. Nick Smisdom and co-workers

Extra Information:

This workshop is organized back-to-back with the ‘Specialist Course on Light and Fluorescence Microscopy’, organized by Ghent University from the 3rd till the 5th (noon) of September in Ghent, and which covers all the basics of fluorescence microscopy in detail.
