Every two years, the Microspectroscopy Research Facility Wageningen of Wageningen University & Research and Microscopic Imaging Centre of Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences organise a FEBS advanced practical course on fluorescence microspectroscopy for young scientists and PhD students. We organise this course in collaboration with Dr. Y. Stahl and Dr. S. Weidtkamp-Peters from Heinrich Heine University (Düsseldorf), Germany.
During this course, you will learn different microscopy techniques for studying biological processes in living cells. Microspectroscopic applications are the methods of choice because direct information on molecular interactions and dynamic events involving biomolecules is obtained with minimal perturbation of cellular integrity and function.
The course will cover the following techniques:
Confocal microscopy, Multiphoton microscopy, Photo-activatable imaging, Single particle tracking, Total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy, Super-Resolution and Correlative Microscopy, Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET), FRET imaging techniques, Fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM), Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS), Multi dimensional Fluorescence, Fluorescence recovery after Photobleaching (FRAP)
