Principles and Applications of Fluorescence Microscopy

The use of fluorescence microscopy in combination with genetically encoded fluorescence probes comprise powerful strategies to study live cells. This yearly course (taught in English) is dedicated to Master II and PhD students from all disciplines with a quantitative biological background and a strong motivation for learning established and emerging microscopy methods. International students are also encouraged to apply.

This course will cover:

  • Basic optics and fluorescence principles underlying traditional and super-resolution microscopy
  • Applications of fluorescence-based microscopy methods to studying living cells
  • Hands-on experience constructing basic optics configurations used in microscopy
  • Hands-on experience using state-of-the-art imaging equipment provided by microscope vendors.
