Upcoming course:

In the Footsteps of Van Leeuwenhoek
Advanced imaging course of living cells

June 2016

This course is organized by the Leeuwenhoek Centre for Advanced Microscopy (LCAM) and provides an in-depth view of specific advanced imaging techniques used at imaging centers of AMC, NKI and FNWI.

The course focuses fully on intensive hands-on practical sessions and interactive discussions with experts in the various microscope techniques. On the final day participants present their own research topic and discuss which techniques should be implemented in their project.

Organisers: LCAM

LCAM is a collaboration between three innovative microscopy centres at the Academic Medical Centre (AMC), the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam (FNWI) and the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI). Here you will find a wide range of instrumentation for fluorescence-, confocal-, super-resolution & living cell microscopy combined with equipment for functional imaging.

Besides supporting research, LCAM organizes on a regular basis basic and advanced courses for users who are interested in applying fluorescence microscopy in their research.
