About the Practical Course

Besides complex networks of protein interactions, the life of the cell is also governed by biophysical parameters. The objective of this course is to disseminate practical knowledge concerning recent quantitative fluorescence microscopy methods aiming at characterizing biophysical properties of the living samples. In the present practical course, we wish to introduce recent imaging methods allowing participants to assess three essential biophysical components of the intracellular environment:

  1. the diffusion-reaction dynamics
  2. the physico-chemical state
  3. the mechanical tensions

Each component will be assessed in living cells and tissues using complementary methods. Hands-on sessions will focus not only on data acquisition but also on the methods available to quantitatively analyze and model these data.

Poster specifications

Please bring one printed copy of your poster in A0 size, portrait format

Travel grants

A limited number of travel grants are available for participants. Applicants do not need to apply separately for travel grants for this event but should indicate on the registration form if they wish to be considered for a travel grant. Selection of awardees is handled directly by the organizer who will notify all eligible participants. More information is available at EMBO Travel Grants page.

Child care grant

EMBO Courses and Workshops offers grants to offset additional child care costs incurred by participants or speakers when participating at any EMBO Courses and Workshop funded meeting. Eligible costs include fees for a caregiver or child-care facility, travel costs for a caregiver, or travel costs for taking the child to the meeting etc. Please indicate on the registration form whether you would like to be considered for the grant. Please also describe how you intend to use the child care grant and specify the sum that you will need.

Transport

The city of Rennes can be reached by plane (2 planes per day from Paris) or by train from Paris or other cities in France and Europe.

From the Rennes airport to the institute of Genetics and Development of Rennes (~40 min)

The easiest way is to take a cab. If you take public transport, turn to the left at the exit of the airport and walk along the avenue Joseph Le Brix for 300 m, cross the little square and reach the bus stop Aire Libre.
