We have an exciting line-up of speakers and instructors to guide selected participants through 10 intense days of microscopy with light sheet systems. The course features a complete line-up of commercially available light sheet microscopy technology including several flavours of multi-view SPIMs, Ultramicroscope, lattice light sheet, SCAPE, diSPIM as well as optical table setups and open access systems. The course covers all aspects of light sheet technology from microscope assembly, sample preparation, imaging to light sheet data processing with commercial and open access tools such as Fiji.
We are looking for biologists, physicists and computer scientists to form interdisciplinary teams that will perform experiments with their own samples brought to the course. All this will happen in the stimulating and open atmosphere of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden (MPI-CBG) for the third time in 6 years.
The course will be followed by the 10th Anniversary Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy Conference Aug 12-15th 2018 @MPI-CBG in Dresden that brings together leading scientists in the light sheet field:
Students of the course are expected to actively participate in this conference.
We encourage application on all levels from undergrads, PhD students, post-docs, junior faculty to staff of imaging facilities. Travel fellowships are available for students from Central and Eastern Europe.
Apply by April 15th 2018!
