Fluorescence imaging workshop

What kind of workshop?

This workshop covers all steps from the basics of fluorescence imaging to professional applications and lets you learn fluorescence imaging according to your needs through following processes: lecture, imaging, analysis and presentation. Since 2015, we are offering common course “Introduction to Fluorescence Imaging” for graduate students. The course is divided into Basics as Fluorescence imaging workshop and Applications as Fluorescence imaging workshop advanced.

Course Objectives

Students understand the principle of cutting-edge fluorescence bioimaging from basics and indeed acquire images of living cells. In addition, learn techniques to handle imaging data for appropriate processing and analyses. Furthermore, learn a process to find biological significance from imaging data. Finally, student will give presentation about obtained results.

Course Goals

Learn the principles of cutting-edge fluorescence imaging from the lectures by faculty stuffs and special lecturers. In addition, handle such equipments and acquire fluorescence images of living cells expression fluorescent proteins. Perform optimal processing and analyses of the acquired super-resolution images. Finally, give presentation about obtained results and discussion using PowerPoint.
