Light sheet microscopy
August 2 - August 12(Deadline: April 15)
About the Practical Course
Light sheet microscopy is an emerging technology that enables imaging of large biological specimens with minimal photodamage. It opens new avenues to study cell biological and developmental processes with unprecedented imaging speed and facilitates systems biology approaches by quantitative imaging of entire living systems. Light sheet microscopy has only recently left the optical tables of technology developers and become more broadly available through commercial and open access platforms. This EMBO practical course will comprehensively introduce the light sheet microscopy paradigm to the new generation of scientists.
The course will be immediately followed by a 10th anniversary light sheet fluorescence microscopy conference held at MPI-CBG in Dresden between 12-15 August 2018. The students of the course will be able to attend the conference free of charge and will present the results of the course at a special dedicated session.
