"Advances in technologies for high resolution in vivo microscopy.
From single molecule detection to functional studies"


6th - 18th August | 2006 |Buenos Aires| Argentina

 

About the course

The main objective of this Practical Course is to introduce state-of-the-art microscopy for Cell Biology and Cell Biophysics research to students primarily from Latin-American and other developing countries, but also from Europe.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will provide a comprehensive overview of, and practical experience with, the most advanced techniques in fluorescence and atomic force microscopy including single molecule imaging. Participants will have hands-on practical experience with expression probes for in vivo imaging such as VFP (Visible Fluorescent Protein) constructs and Quantum Dots, using cutting edge fluorescence microscopy techniques. These will include confocal and multiphoton microscopy, Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) and lifetime (FLIM) techniques, and other non-linear superresolution approaches.
