NorMic Workshop on Biological Optical Microscopy, 24-27 April 2018, University of Oslo, Norway


Blindern, University of Oslo, and Radium Hospital, Oslo


24-27 April 2018

Content of the workshop

The NorMic Oslo Imaging Platform is organizing a four-day workshop on Biological Optical Microscopy. The aim of the workshop is to teach both theoretical and practical aspects of current optical microscopy techniques for life science researchers.

The workshop consists of both theory lectures (morning) and practical sessions (afternoon). The selected applicants (25) will be divided into 5 different groups, each group will choose or will be assigned a mini-imaging-project to work on, so that the recently acquired knowledge can be practiced and revised. There will be an oral presentation session on the mini-projects at the end of the workshop.

Topics to be covered

  • Widefield contrasting techniques
  • Point scanning/Spinning disk confocal
  • Super-resolution microscopy (SIM, SMLM, Rescan, STED)
  • SPIM, F-tecniques (FRET/FRAP/FLIM)
  • Non-linear microscopy
  • CLEM principle
  • Interferometry
  • Fluorescence & Dyes
  • Sample preparation
  • Basic image processing
  • Aberrations & artifacts.

For additional information please check the workshop announcement.
Application deadline: 28 February 2018
