Basics in fluorescence microscopy course, 15-18 February 2022, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

We are happy to announce the course “Basics in fluorescence microscopy”, organised by the van Leeuwenhoek Centre for Advanced Microscopy at Amsterdam University (UvA), the Netherlands, February 15-18th, 2022.

This is a 4-days basic microscopy course for graduate students, postdocs and lab technicians in biology, biophysics and (bio)medicine. It provides detailed knowledge of the working principles of confocal and widefield fluorescence imaging, with special emphasis on experiment related issues, such as optical aberrations, bleaching, specimen preparation and fluorescent probes. The course integrates theoretical lectures with hands-on experiments and practical experience. Experts in the field of microscopy will give an overview of “state-of-the-art” imaging techniques in biological research.

Health safety note: As long as the Dutch government and UvA allows us to organise courses without any >1.5 meter distance restrictions this BFM course will be organised as planned. However at the moment that  >1.5 meter distance regulations would become active we are not able to organise the many practical sessions and we will have to postpone or cancel this course.
