About the Practical Course
This EMBO Practical Course offers the opportunity to acquire a portfolio of cutting-edge electron microscopy (EM) methods, allowing the participants to integrate EM tools and readouts into the workflow of their own cell biology research projects. The Practical Course focuses on teaching the theoretical background and the latest practical developments in the field.
Students, early-stage post-docs, and technicians are encouraged to apply.
● State-of-the-art fixation, including cryo-methods
● Correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM)
● Molecular mapping (immuno-EM)
● 3D EM using tomography and serial imaging
● Advanced quantitative image analysis (stereology, nanomorphomics)
You will gain an intensive overview of the most advanced methods in electron microscopy for cell biology. We will provide training in project/experimental design, often adapted to each student’s project. Moreover, the course has been running for over 30 years and has contributed to the creation of a wide community of electron microscopists (both students and teachers) all over the world.

About EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Courses and Workshops are selected for their excellent scientific quality and timelines, provision of good networking activities for all participants and speaker gender diversity (at least 40% of speakers must be from the underrepresented gender).
Organisers are encouraged to implement measures to make the meeting environmentally more sustainable.
