About the Practical Course
Super-resolution light microscopy (SRLM) is a dynamically evolving field of biomedical approaches. The knowledge of these approaches enables scientists to apply the suitable type of SRLM to their own research projects.
The main goal of this course is to practically demonstrate a broad variety of SRLM methods. During the course, a majority of available SRLM systems will be demonstrated and available for hands-on experience. Leading experts of the field will present their research and methodology. Many opportunities for discussions and social networking will provide a unique and highly efficient environment to support sharing of skills and knowledge. This promotes establishing of contacts and communication channels within the in-field scientific SR community.
The focus of the course is on the practical part with a lot of hands-on sessions supported by theoretical lectures and complemented by presentations of ongoing scientific projects presented by leaders of the field.
