The goal of this workshop is to educate scientists about the power of modern light microscopy methods in all disciplines. Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy lectures about basic principles in microscopy as well as cutting-edge methods and applications. During daily hands-on sessions, participants will have access to microscopy equipment as well as analysis tools.
We are happy to support this event by hosting Corinne Lorenzo (ITAV, Toulouse), and we will, of course, be present with arivis Vision4D and arivis InViewR to show you the latest innovations in image analysis, large data handling and virtual reality.
Over the course participants will have access to state-of-the-art microscopy equipment and analysis tools under guidance of academic as well as industrial imaging professionals. Practical sessions take place in small groups, allowing participants to gain first-hand experience with the presented instruments. A series of basic and advanced lectures in microscopy, given by experts in the field, convey and refresh necessary theoretical insights and present specific applications of cutting-edge methods. Aim of this workshop is to increase the awareness of both young & established life science scientists towards this rapidly developing technology, which, more than ever before, has become indispensable for competitive live science research. Its impact is shown by the fact that most publications in relevant, leading journals involve light microscopy approaches to a high degree. In lectures given by a selection of invited speakers, members of UL and product specialist of the participating companies, the participants will learn about
- all the relevant theoretical basics of light microscopy, necessary for the understanding and appropriate use of this technology
- the currently available technologies and their applications, ranging from simple transmission to super-resolution approaches
