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.

EMBO practical course Super-resolution in light microscopy, 20-22 September 2021, virtual

About the Practical Course

Super-resolution light microscopy (SRLM) is a dynamically evolving field of biomedical sciences.

Despite the Covid-19 situation, we feel the need to stay close together and keep our “EMBO Practical course: Super-resolution in light microscopy” alive and run it in VIRTUAL.

On the virtual platform, we would offer three-day course full of scientific lecture presented by progressive scientists from the field, solving very practical aspects of microscopy work in super-resolution.

The scientific lectures will be balanced with sufficient number of lectures given by leading microscopic companies presenting their new and original solutions for SR microscopy not from marketing but from the technical and principal way.

The theoretical background needed for understanding the methods will be covered by brief booklet compilation of super-resolution techniques fundaments. By that, participants will be theoretically introduced to the main SR approaches: Single molecule localization microscopy (SMLM), Structured illumination microscopy (SIM), Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy and high-resolution computational methods.

Practical shape of the course will be secured by combination of three practical sessions “live-shared-screens” of running SR systems with brief and strait way demonstration of how to set up the acquisition, what is important to check and how quickly evaluate the result image; inspected techniques will be STED, SIM and SMLM.
