10-Day Practical Course on Advanced Optical Microscopy for Cell Biology

We have a variety of multiphoton imaging systems, electrophysiology rigs, manipulators and staging available at a reduced price. Find out more here.

The 10-day practical course on Advanced Optical Microscopy for Cell Biology consists of a combination of lectures and hands-on practical sessions. 

There will be 2–3 lectures each day throughout. Lectures will cover topics from basic optics, detectors and light sources through to photochemistry involved in the development of novel fluorescent probes and the application of advanced super-resolution optical microscopy techniques.  The first 3 days will be spent setting up microscopes for brightfield and epifluorescence microscopy, including polarisation and interference contrast methods. The final 6 days will be organised in rotations around the 9 experiments listed below. 

The experiments will be in the large classroom at the MBA and in rooms nearby. Use will be made of marine specimens where possible and students may have an opportunity to trawl for benthos and plankton, depending on weather and availability of the MBA research vessel.
