  • “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.

  • Virtual Flow Cytometry Data Course Spring 2021

    08 to 11 March 2021

    The RMS is holding an interactive virtual course on flow cytometric data analysis.

    This course, which will run over 4 half-days, will cover the basics of analysis for a number of different applications including antibody phenotyping, DNA and cell cycle kinetics, cell proliferation and death, and functional studies. There will also be the opportunity to explore high-dimensional analysis using dimensionality reduction and clustering techniques.

    Delegates will be able to use data files (which will be provided) and follow along with directed analysis by the course demonstrators. Analysis will be performed in either FlowJo or FCS Express and Applications specialists will also form part of the demonstrator team.

    This course is suitable for those who are relatively new to flow cytometry and who wish to expand their experience with applications and specific analysis.

  • High Content Imaging 2021

    23 to 25 March 2021

    High content imaging (HCI) involves automated collection and analysis of images to provide quantitative data on a range of functional and morphological changes in cells, spheroids or organoids. It has become a widely used tool in cell biology and drug discovery, for example in screening of drug candidates, fragments, RNAi, miR and phenotypic screens using CRISPR-Cas9, amongst other.  This meeting will introduce the power of HCI to new or inexperienced users, but will also cover current HCI case studies from leaders in the field and advances in HCI techniques and analysis. Major suppliers of HCI software and analysis will be present to demonstrate applications and uses of their HCI equipment and software. Anyone interested in HCI, whether starting out in the field or an experienced user, will benefit from attending.

  • Basics of Electron Microscopy Virtual Spring School

    19 to 22 April 2021

    The RMS Basics of Electron Microscopy Virtual Spring School is aimed at those seeking an introduction to electron microscopy.

    The course, set across 4 afternoon sessions, will provide delegates with a mix of lectures, live microscope and sample preparation demonstration sessions, with lots of time for Q&A and discussion of participants projects. With a maximum of 10 participants per stream, we will provide plenty of opportunity for engagement with the course speakers.

    The course will be delivered in three streams, TEM for biological specimens, SEM for materials and TEM for materials. Delegates will be asked to choose one stream to work within, although some of the theoretical content will be shared between the streams. By the end of the course, delegates will have an understanding of the basic anatomy of the microscope and image formation, learn general methods of sample preparation and receive an introduction to microscope operation.

  • Virtual Super-Resolution Workshop

    09 July 2021

    Designed to talk about the current challenges in developing and using super-resolution microscopy with short talks and lots of time for discussion, this year the workshop will be split into 2 sessions, focussing on the topics of ‘using machine learning and AI in super-resolution imaging’ and the other will be ‘expansion microscopy’.  Thoughts and ideas are encouraged to help define what is good/best practice around these challenges, and give an insight into future potential developments.

  • CINEMAX VI PhD Summer school in Denmark

    23 to 27 August 2021

    “You will be given the opportunity to get teaching and hands-on experience with the complete workflow of high-resolution tomography analysis.

     

    During the PhD summer school, you will be introduced to data acquisition, 3D reconstruction, segmentation and meshing and, finally, 3D modelling of data to extract physical parameters that describe mechanical and flow properties. The teaching and the exercises will take place in close interaction with top experts in the research fields. The exercises will require some basic programming skills and will be carried out in a common Python environment, introduced through an e-learning program which the students are required to follow before the PhD summer school (Introduction to Advanced Tomography on Coursera).

     

    Details:

    Participants: PhD students

    Location: Fuglsang Manor on Lolland, Denmark

    Registration deadline: 15 July 2021

  • All Things Cryo – a virtual course

    21 to 24 September 2021

    There can be no doubt that Cryo-EM continues to be a hot topic following the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for its development. In fact many cryo-techniques have been around for over 40 years and are in use in both academic and industrial settings being applied to a full range of soft matter and materials samples beyond single particle analysis of proteins. This course looks to educate scientists and engineers to the full range of cryo-techniques, who are looking to characterise, analyse and understand structure / function of their samples where stabilisation of volatiles (often water) is required.

  • One Day flowcytometryUK Meeting 2021

    18 November 2021

    The one day flowcytometryUK 2021 Meeting will take place in Cambridge highlighting the diverse areas in which cytometry is a vital resource. There will be scientific presentations from a number of speakers interspersed with commercial flash presentations. A commercial exhibition will allow delegates to see recent developments in the field. The meeting also offers a great opportunity to network with fellow cytometrists in a relaxed and informal environment.
