Just a reminder that I am once again co-directing the QB3-UCSF Course in Biological Light Microscopy and we are still looking for students to attend the course. Here are the details:
August 3 – 9, 2014
Genentech Hall, UCSF Mission Bay
Directors: Bo Huang and Kurt Thorn
This course provides an intensive introduction to the theory and practice of light microscopy, beginning with optics and continuing to the latest super-resolution techniques.
The course includes didactic lectures from a number of UCSF faculty in their areas of expertise and hands-on laboratory sessions with state-of-the-art microscopes. Specific topics include: basic optics (build your own optical rail microscope); fourier optics; brightfield contrasting; fluorescence microscopy and probes; confocal microscopy; TIRF; two-photon, FRAP/FLIP/photoconversion; and super-resolution microscopy
Laboratory work and lectures will be held at the UCSF Mission Bay campus. Course tuition is $2,295, including lunch and dinner. Stipends for tuition are available.
Attendance limited to 24 students. Please apply by April 15, 2014.
For more information and to apply see the course webpage or contact me directly.
Sponsors include QB3, Nikon, Technical Instruments, Agilent, Photometrics, and Andor; full list here.
Please forward to anyone who may be interested.
