    Practical Course of Fluorescence Microscopy

    The use of fluorescence microscopy (wide-field, time lapse, and confocal) in combination with fluorescence probes comprise a powerful set of scientific tools to study live cells. 

    This one-week, comprehensive and intensive fluorescence microscopy course, conducted by the Nikon experts, will cover all aspects of the technology from the principals of fluorescence imaging to multidimensional imaging from cells to single molecules with advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. Lectures dealing with the theory, mechanics, and application of basic and advanced fluorescent microscopy will be intermingled with extended laboratory practicals in which students will be encouraged to use their own specimens to optimize the utility of the course. Our goal is to provide students with the knowledge and expertise to implement cutting-edge microscopic methods within their own laboratories. Each day consists of morning lectures, followed by hands on microscopy experimentation.

    The course is divided into three sections: Bright Field and Fluorescence Microscopy, Live Cells Microscopy: Imaging and Time-Lapse, and Confocal Microscopy.
