The short course on “Time-Resolved Microscopy and Correlation Spectroscopy”, organized by PicoQuant GmbH, will be held from February 25 to 27, 2014 at the science and technology park WISTA in Berlin-Adlershof, Germany. The scope of the course is to provide an in-depth introduction to principles and applications of time-resolved fluorescence microscopy from a theoretical and experimental point of view. Registration is possible until January 15, 2014.
The three day event includes lectures of renowned scientists as well as hands-on experimentation on instruments provided by market-leading companies including Leica, Nikon, Olympus, and PicoQuant.
- Instrumentation for time-resolved fluorescence microscopy
- Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS)
- Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging (FLIM)
- Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET)
Lectures are given by Jörg Enderlein and Fred Wouters from the University of Göttingen, Mark Hink from the University of Amsterdam, Paul French from the Imperial College London, Johan Hofkens from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of PicoQuant. After the lectures in the morning, participants have the opportunity to get hands-on training on different confocal microscopes capable of time-resolved data acquisition for FLIM and FCS.
Registration is open until January 15, 2014.
