This new Casimir course is aimed at providing our PhD students with a solid background on the principles of optical and electron microscopy techniques and their applications to study biological processes from the single‐molecule to the cellular level.

During seven days (see the schedule in the below for the exact dates and time) the teachers will elaborate on the following topics:

  • Fluorescence, microscopy, correlation spectroscopy, application FRET  
  • Superresolution fluorescence microscopy  
  • Live cell/animal fluorescence/bioluminescence imaging  
  • SEM, TEM, AFM  
  • Cryo‐TEM, Electron tomography, correlative light and electron microscopy  

Lab tours are also part of the course days.

Registration for this course is now closed. Would you still like to participate in this year's sessions? Ask Marije Boonstra for the options.
