Principles of Fluorescence Techniques

Juni 24, 2009

The Fluorescence Education Center, also referred to as the Fluorescence Foundation, will host two courses on the principles of fluorescence techniques to be held from:
June 29 – July 2, 2009 in Genova, Italy
and
September 14-17, 2009 in Madrid, Spain

The Principles of Fluorescence Techniques course will outline the basic concepts of fluorescence techniques and the successful utilization of the currently available commercial instrumentation. The course is designed for students who utilize fluorescence techniques and instrumentation and for researchers and industrial scientists who wish to deepen their knowledge of fluorescence applications. Key scientists in the field will deliver theoretical lectures. The lectures will be complemented by the direct utilization of steady state and lifetime fluorescence instrumentation and confocal microscopy for FLIM and FRET applications.

Topics addressed in this course include:

– Basic Definitions and Principles of Fluorescence
– Fluorescence Polarization
– Time-resolved Fluorescence
– Instrumentation
– Data Manipulation and Data Analysis
– Non-Linear Microscopy Including SHG
– GFP Fluorescence and Photoactivation
– Confocal and Multiphoton Fluorescence Microscopy
– FCS, Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy
– FLIM, Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging
– Single Molecule Imaging
– Image Processing and Deconvolution Approaches

3D in 12 Days

April 30, 2009

During June, 13-25, the 14th annual Living Cell Course will take place at the University of British Columbia Medicine School (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. This residential course concentrates on all aspects of the 3D microscopy of living cells. Designed for biological research scientists and advanced graduate students, who apply – or plan to – modern 3D imaging, the course want to open up-to-date methods to a wider selection of scientists. The aim of this intense course is to bring students and manufacturers together. The course’s topics include amongst others scanning systems like AODs, mirrors and disks, deconvolution of wide-field and confocal data, dye design, poisson noise QE and S/N, calcium imaging, as well as „how to keep cells alive“.
