Basics in fluorescence microscopy 2023

Date: 2023-01-23 to 2023-01-27

Our van Leeuwenhoek Centre for Advanced Microscopy - Functional Imaging Flagship Node Amsterdam, at Amsterdam University (UvA), is offering a course called “Basics in fluorescence microscopy” from January 24-27th, 2023.  

This is a 4-days basic microscopy course for graduate students, postdocs and lab technicians in biology, biophysics and (bio)medicine. It provides detailed knowledge of the working principles of confocal and widefield fluorescence imaging, with special emphasis on experiment related issues, such as optical aberrations, bleaching, specimen preparation and fluorescent probes. The course integrates theoretical lectures with hands-on experiments and practical experience. Experts in the field of microscopy will give an overview of “state-of-the-art” imaging techniques in biological research.
