1st INL workshop on combined microscopies

8-9 November, 2018 | INL, Braga, Portugal

On behalf of the Organizing Committee we welcome you to the 1st INL workshop on combined microscopies. 8 and 9 November 2018 researchers will gather at INL in Braga, Portugal, to discuss approaches and benefits of combining different microscopy approaches in the life sciences. In this first workshop we will focus in particularly on Structured Illumination Microscopy (SIM) and live cell Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). We invite researchers to contribute works experimenting with different multimodal approaches to biomedical imaging. A total of $500 in prize money sponsored by The Optical Society (OSA) will be awarded to the best contributions.

EMBO Practical Course on

Biomolecular interaction analysis 2018: From molecules to cells

29 October–3 November 2018 | Porto, Portugal


A comprehensive and integrated characterization of molecular interactions is key to the understanding of life processes at a molecular level. Due to their complexity, the study of binding events require the gathering of data from multiple methods in order to build a complete picture of their function.This EMBO Practical Course aims at a multidisplinary approach to the study of molecular interactions from and in biological systems, integrating biochemical/biophysical methodologies with live microscopy techniques.

EMBO practical course on 3D Developmental Imaging

30 June – 08 July 2018 | IGC, Oeiras, Portugal


This 9-day practical course is great for young researchers working in developmental biology (grad students & post-docs or young PIs), who need to image in 3D morphogenetic processes in vivo (animals & plants). Applicants are required to submit a mini-project to carry out during the course, and are encouraged to bring their own samples; we provide a full wetlab with conditions to maintain YOUR embryos! Students can expect to learn how to image their embryos with confocal, two-photon, light-sheet and optical tomography (expected >10 different systems available! lectures also on x-ray micro-tomography and 3D EM), and also 3D image analysis & publication with free (ImageJ, Drishti and others) and commercial software (eg Huygens and Imaris).

The course has several excellent guest speakers and commercial partners, and is hosted by the Advanced Imaging facility at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciencias in Oeiras, Portugal. It is a very intense, but also informal course where everyone is encouraged to work long hours, get own results, exchange knowledge, tips, tricks and know about best practices in 3D imaging.

We are looking for 16 highly motivated students to take advantage of this unique opportunity. The registration fee INCLUDES meals, course materials, hotel and local transport, all made possible by generous sponsorship from EMBO, the Gulbenkian Institute and our commercial partners. EMBO provides in addition a limited number of travel grants for candidates from Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Malta, Lithuania, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Turkey and Chile, India, Singapore and Taiwan.
