10th Course on Optical Microscopy Imaging for Biosciences

9-13 April 2018 | i3S, Porto, Portugal

i3S - Instituto de Investigação e Inovação | Porto, Portugal


The 10th edition of the Course on Optical Microscopy Imaging for Biosciences offers to the participants a comprehensive and intensive light microscopy course, that
explores the fundamentals of light microscopy including the optical contrast techniques and fluorescence microscopy. Additionally, it also focuses in advanced light microscopy techniques such as laser scanning confocal microscopy, TIRFM, super-resolution methods, live cell imaging, molecular analysis and quantitative applications and will include an introduction to digital image analysis.
Lectures will be taught by specialists in microscopy and practical sessions supported by the major microscopy companies.


18 - 22 June 2018 | i3S, Porto

Fundamentally practical, this course aims introducing the participants in experimental design, image acquisition, image and data analysis for high throughput (HT) experiments. These are essential skills when generating massive amount of imaged-based data in the biosciences field. Lectures will be given by specialists in the field and participants will learn how to use state of the art technology for HT experimentation and open-source software for image and data analysis. Attendants will get acquainted with use of automated liquid handling equipment and high content (HC) imagers such as IN Cell Analyzer (HCS microscope) and ImageStream (imaging flow cytometer). Interaction with HTS/HCS specialists will be fostered due to the restricted amount of participants.

Registration Deadline: 4th June 2018


IV Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy Course

September 24th-28th, 2018 | MICC-CNC, University of Coimbra, Coimbra, Portugal


The III Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy Course is an one-week intensive microscopy course focused on the principles and high-end applications of quantitative fluorescence microscopy.  

Participants will gain a theoretical understanding and hands-on experience on state-of-the-art equipment such as widefield microscopy, laser scanning and spinning disk confocal microscopy, multi-photon microscopy, deconvolution methods, and digital image processing and analysis.
