About the ELMI

ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.

FEBS Advanced Course “Functional imaging of cellular signals”, June 11-16th 2017, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Organisers: van Leeuwenhoek Centre for Advanced Microscopy & FEBS
Description: The ability of cells to perceive and correctly respond to their environment is the basis of development, tissue repair and immunity as well as normal tissue homeostasis. Errors in cell signalling are responsible for many diseases. In order to understand cell signalling, microscopic techniques can be used to elucidate signal complex composition, organization and dynamics. This practical advanced course will provide participants the theoretical background and give hands-on experience of state-of-the-art microscopy techniques under guidance of experts in the field.
Techniques: Confocal, TIRF and spinning-disk microscopy, FRAP, FLIM, biosensor FRET & FCS.
Participants: 20 PhD students & postdocs with microscope experience
