8th Course on Optical Microscopy Imaging for Biosciences

11-15 April 2016 | i3S, Porto, Portugal
i3S - Instituto de Investigação e Inovação | Rua Alfredo Allen, 208 | 4200-135 Porto, Portugal

The 8th Course on Optical Microscopy Imaging for Biosciences is a comprehensive and intensive course that aims to provide the basis of modern light microscopy. It is designed to graduate students, early career researchers and all people interested in “zooming into the cell”.
The course explores the principles of optical microscopy including: fundamentals of light microscopy and digital imaging; principles of wide-field and confocal fluorescence microscopy; live cell imaging and advanced microscopy applications; new cell imaging technologies.

This course includes lectures taught by specialists in microscopy and digital imaging and practical sessions supported by the major microscopy companies.
