This is a 8-days advanced microscopy course for graduate students, postdocs and lab technicians in biology, biophysics and (bio)medicine that already have experience with fluorescence microscopy. In this course we will focus on functional imaging technologies that can be used in biology such as FRET, FLIM, FRAP, FCS & super-resolution microscopy.
The course integrates theoretical lectures with hands-on experiments and practical experience. Experts in the field will give an overview of these “state-of-the-art” imaging techniques in biological research.
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.
