  • Advanced course Correlative Light Electron Microscopy

    22 to 27 June 2017

    In the workshop we offer a balanced “mix” of lectures and practical sessions. The entire workflow from specimen to fluorescent image to immune-labeled ultrathin section will be dealt with. Under guidance of the skilled staff of the Utrecht Cell Microscopy Core Life cell CLEM and Section CLEM including the complete Tokuyasu technique will be practiced and explained to the finest detail. Biological samples and immuno-reagents will be available. The program is meant for people that already have experience in cryosectioning and immunolabeling and want to extend their expertise into CLEM. We provide an excellent learning environment. When manual skills like ultrathin cryo-sectioning are being trained the participants will have their own ultra-cryo microtome (often equipped with a camera) to practice on. The number of participants is limited to 10 people. We will provide you with a practical manual covering the topics of the course.


  • EMAT Workshop on Transmission Electron Microscopy

    12 to 23 June 2017

    A complete training on HRTEM and TEM spectroscopy  focused on hands-on experience.

    A state-of-the-art training in Transmission Electron Microscopy at the highest level is provided. Lectures will be given by staff members of the EMAT research group and special topics are covered by guest lecturers. The main focus of the workshop is to provide practical experience with a broad range of TEM instruments. We offer the choice between 2 different modules, “High resolution TEM” and “TEM Spectroscopy”, preceded by a workshop on “Basic TEM”.


  • FEBS Advanced Course "Functional imaging of cellular signals"

    11 to 16 June 2017

    The ability of cells to perceive and correctly respond to their environment is the basis of development, tissue repair and immunity as well as normal tissue homeostasis Errors in cell signalling are responsible for many diseases. In order to understand cell signalling, microscopic techniques can be used to elucidate signal complex composition, organization and dynamics. This practical advanced course will provide participants the theoretical background and give hands-on experience of state-of-the-art microscopy techniques under guidance of experts in the field.
    Techniques: Confocal, TIRF and spinning-disk microscopy, FRAP, FLIM, biosensor FRET & FCS.
    Participants: 20 PhD students & postdocs with microscope experience

    Contact: Dr. M.A. Hink (


  • 4th Quantitative Electron Microscopy School

    22 May to 02 June 2017

    QEM2017 will be the 4th edition of Quantitative Electron Microscopy School, a 10 consecutive-days time that will be spend (full board) around advanced Transmission Electron Microscopy near Sete, on the French Méditerranée sea (étang de Thau).

    Don't miss such event that is only taking place every 4-years. It is a unique opportunity to get an exhaustive overview of up-to-date advanced TEM techniques along with practicals on TEMs (at least two microscopes will be install on site by FEI and JEOL) as well as on last softwares and with renowned lecturers.


  • Advanced Work­shop on Cryo-Electron Tomog­ra­phy

    08 May to 12 June 2017

    The Elec­tron Microscopy Facil­ity of the Vienna Bio­cen­ter Core Facil­i­ties (VBCF, Vienna, Aus­tria) and Nex­pe­rion – Solu­tions for Elec­tron Microscopy (Vienna, Aus­tria) are jointly organ­is­ing an inter­na­tional

    Advanced Work­shop on Cryo-Electron Tomog­ra­phy

    for stu­dents, post­doc­toral staff, sci­en­tists, and group lead­ers from acad­e­mia and indus­try.

    While the work­shop is tar­get­ing an advanced audi­ence (pre-existing knowl­edge in elec­tron tomog­ra­phy, data pro­cess­ing, and/or cryo-TEM), a week­end pre-course will be offered for less expe­ri­enced par­tic­i­pants to catch-up.


  • Porto AFM Training Workshop 2017

    10 to 13 April 2017

    The course will run from the 10th to 13th April. This is a training workshop, aimed at any researcher or scientist, who wants to learn about AFM, or increase their knowledge of the technique. Following the successful courses that have run since 2011, the course will includes several hours hands-on training in acquiring images with the atomic force microscope as well as AFM data processing.



    06 to 10 March 2017

    With this workshop we want to demonstrate the possibilities of cryo-TEM, and to show you how to use this powerful technique in your own research and in your own laboratory. The workshop is aimed at participants at PhD/post doc level and who are experienced in basic microscopy and who wish to ex- tend their knowledge and practical experience in 2D and/or 3D cryo-imaging. The workshop will con- sist of lectures from experts, but also of extensive practical, hands-on sessions where you will be stimulated to investigate samples from your own research.

  • “Transmission electron microscopy in life sciences” Course

    28 November 2016

    The course "Transmission Electron Microscopy in Life Sciences" is aimed at beginners and intermediate users of transmission electron microscopes in biomedicine. It will devote about equal time to the theory and to practical use of microscopes. The course is limited to 15 participants and during practical sessions the participants will be divided into three groups. The techniques discussed at theoretical sessions will be demonstrated on three transmission electron microscopes of varying complexity - the simplest Morgagni, more complex Philips CM 100 and the most powerful Tecnai T20. After the course, the participants should understand the principles of construction and function of transmission electron microscopes, should be able to align the microscope for optimal performance, to identify and eliminate most common aberrations and alignment artifacts, to understand the principles of image generation in transmission electron microscopy, and to identify optimal ways of image acquisition. The participants will be also given up-to-date information about best ways of sample preparation for transmission electron microscopy, and about recent transmission electron microscopy trends in biomedicine. Participants are encouraged to bring their own samples on 3.05 mm TEM grids. There will be ample opportunity for the participants to discuss their specific problems with the faculty.

    The course will be taught in English.
