  • Light Microscopy Summer School 2019

    14 to 17 July 2019
    University of York – York – United Kingdom

    The Light Microscopy summer school is an annual, residential three day course held at the University of York covering the principles of light microscopy. Participants are also trained in practical issues surrounding light microscopy. After introductory presentations, the course is taught predominantly through hands-on practical sessions.

    The course is suitable for both novices and more experienced users wanting to gain a greater understanding of the microscope and feedback every year is always fantastic. Students came from a range of backgrounds in 2018, within both research and commercial organisations. All benefited greatly from the Course and left with increased understanding and skills.

    The course is immediately followed by a two day hands-on Confocal Course - Getting the most from your Confocal.

It has become widely used as a tool for, amongst other things, screening of drug candidates, fragments, RNAi and miR.  This meeting is aimed at introducing the power of HCI to PhD students, early career researchers and academics who are new to HCI or would like to increase their understanding of the technique. It will cover experimental requirements, image collection techniques and analysis in high content imaging, as well as example applications for this approach. Major suppliers of HCI software and analysis will also demonstrate applications and uses of their software.
