Super-resolution light microscopy (SLM2019)

IMG CAS, Videnska 1083, Prague, CZ

November 25-27, 2019

 

https://course.img.cas.cz/slm/

The course will cover the major super-resolution (SR) methods: STED, SIM and SMLM (STORM and PALM).

The aim of the course is to explain how to think about the imaging experiments within the SR microscopy frame and to get contacts to people from the field and share experiences.

Intensive practical sessions by microscopes will be balanced by lectures covering the theoretical background of all presented methods. Young scientists will present the practical application of SR methods in several running projects.

Please, consider that we can open maximally 15 seats for participants to keep the individual approach during the practical sessions.

Motivated PhD students, postdocs and researchers are cordially welcome to spend 3 full days with us and our beautiful microscopes!

Stereology Workshop at the Institute of Anatomy, University of Bern, Switzerland

August 12th – 16th, 2019 and August 17th & 18th 2019 (newCAST training)

Information and registration on www.stereology.unibe.ch

Scope

This course provides an introduction to state-of-the-art stereology with emphasis on its practical application in biomedicine. Experimental design, sampling, use of stereological probes, estimation of stereological parameters, and the application of statistical methods appropriate for stereology are covered. The course encompasses lectures, classroom exercises with real biomedical images, and laboratory practicals demonstrating the implementation of proper sampling and processing techniques on real biological organs.

This course is intended for students and researchers from the field of biology and medicine interested in sampling and measurement of 3D structures.

Applications involving any kind of microscopy (e.g. light microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscopy, multi-photon microscopy, electron microscopy) as well as non-invasive scanning techniques like CT and NMR are welcome.

Participants should bring their specific projects and questions. During the course, there will be ample opportunity for discussions with the instructors.

2nd Part: Hands-on VISIOPHARM newCAST: Sat 17.08 & Sun 18.08.2019

Computer assisted Stereology on provided computer stations.

Imaging of diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in Oncology

 

Workshop XIIIth edition

25-28 September, 2019

France

EuBI will also present at this event!

The "Tumour targeting, Imaging, radiotherapies network" of the Cancéropôle Grand-Ouest is pleased to announce its thirteenth international workshop dedicated to young researchers (PhD Students and Post-Docs) even so experienced researchers are invited to participate, which will take place from the 25th to 28th of September 2019 in Le Bono, West of France.

30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers.

The 13th international workshop edition entitled “Imaging of diagnostic and therapeutic biomarkers in Oncology“ will confront the points of view and problems of the various disciplines, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Medicine, working for the development of imaging in Oncology.

This workshop will focus on the latest advances in imaging techniques: PET, SPECT, MRI, US, Infra-red Bioluminescence, Fluorescence, Photoacoustic, CyTof Imaging, Microscopy, Spectroscopy and Raman Imaging. It aims to address innovative developments in chemistry(synthesis of tracers, chelates, contrast agents, fluorescent probes, etc.), biology (identification of new tumour targets, etc.) and physics (instrumentation, methodological aspects of image analysis, radiomics ...), through the following sessions:

Session 1: Contribution of imaging in diagnosis

Session 2: Contribution of imaging in therapeutic follow-up and evaluation

Session 3: Emerging imaging technologies

Plenary lectures will be given by experts in the different scientific fields addressed by the workshop. A number of selected oral presentations given by young researchers will complete the different scientific sessions. This workshop aims at sharing scientific results and at facilitating exchanges between experienced and young researchers in a fast advancing field.

To stimulate intense discussions between young and senior scientists, the total attendance is limited to a maximum of 65 persons.

 

The event is kindly endorsed by the European Society for Molecular Imaging.

Awards: 30 travel grant awards are available for the young selected researchers (PhD students and Post-Doctoral scientists). Each award consists of complimentary registration to the workshop, accommodation expenses, and up to 250€ contribution to travel expenses.Candidates must submit an abstract and must be selected as speaker in one of the scientific sessions to benefit from these awards. Selected candidates will be notified by June 25th 2018.

Location: This event will take place in the “Manoir de Kerdréan” in Le Bono, in the Gulf of Morbihan, at about two hours from Nantes in West of France.

Abstract submission: Young researchers are asked to submit an abstract presenting their current research projects and results for one of the three scientific sessions of the workshop. Abstract must be in English and contain a maximum of 300 words. A model is available on the website at http://www.cgo-workshop-vecto.fr/. Abstracts will be selected on scientific quality and pertinence. Abstracts not relevant to this workshop will be rejected. The organizing committee will review all submitted abstracts and will determine which abstracts will be presented orally. Due to the limitation of the number of attendees, early registration and abstract submission are strongly advised.

Please, submit your abstract before May 17th, 2019.

Registration: Deadline for registration is June 14th, 2019.

Student/Post-Doc selected for oral presentation: Free

Other attendees: 450 €

Registration includes: Full accommodation/meals from Sept 25th dinner until Sept 28th lunch.

Due to the limited number of attendees, an early registration and abstract submission is strongly advised.
