About the Practical Course
Super-resolution light microscopy (SRLM) is a dynamically evolving field of biomedical sciences. Therefore, the main goal of this course is to teach in-depth practical understanding of key SRLM methods and to enable the participants to apply the appropriate type of SRLM in their own research projects in the future.
The focus of this EMBO Practical Course will be on the practical aspects, complemented by theoretical lectures, which will introduce basic concepts of optics and their relation to SRLM methods. The practical application of SRLM will be demonstrated by presentations of ongoing scientific projects presented by leading scientists in the field.
During this EMBO Practical Course, attendees will be theoretically introduced to the main SR approaches: Single molecule localization microscopy (SMLM), Structured illumination microscopy (SIM), Stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy and high resolution computational methods like SRRF or optical reassignment. Attendees will be practically trained on state-of-the-art systems covering almost all theoretical lectures, including the newest STED or SIM based techniques.
Vivid social interaction between students, lecturers and instructors will be secured during the whole course. Our goal is that participants will leave equipped with in-depth technical know-how related to SRLM, as well as with valuable contacts to the SRLM community.
