Workshop "Quantitative light microscopy in living cells"


Quantitative Light Microscopy in Living Cells 

Coordinators: Jose Rino (IMM) & Tom Kirchhausen (HMS) 

Location: IMM, Lisbon 

Date: April 14th – April 18th, 2010 (9:00 to 18:30) 

Deadline for registration: March 31, 2010
Description: This five-day intensive workshop aims to provide a practical guide for quantitative live cell imaging in research, by bringing together cell biologists and microscopy experts in a relaxed environment to review the most relevant issues, explore advanced techniques and discuss the opportunities offered by the quantitative observation of cells in real-time while successfully keeping them alive. This advanced imaging workshop is aimed at students, doctoral fellows, post-doctoral fellows, medical doctors and faculty with previous working experience in using fluorescence microscopy. The course will combine lectures with daily hands-on laboratories followed by group discussions.

Participants interested in attending the workshop are asked to submit a letter to Sandra_Oliveira@hms.harvard.edu detailing why they are interested in the workshop as well as a brief description of their microscopy and relevant research experience.
