New Molecular Solutions in Research and Development for Innovative Drugs

The InnoMol Bioimaging Workshop

20 Oct 2014 at 08:00

The InnoMol Bioimaging Workshop: October 20-22, 2014 at the Ruđer Bošković Institute.

It is our pleasure to announce the second workshop organized by the EU FP7 project InnoMol.

The Bioimaging Workshop will take place from October 20-22, 2014 at the Ruđer Bošković Institute, Zagreb, Croatia.

The main goal of the Bioimaging Workshop is to provide a comprehensive overview of contemporary methods of advanced light microscopy and their applications in cell biology, microbiology and virology. Selected aspects of correlated electron microscopy, in vivo imaging approaches, and certain advanced topics of transmission electron microscopy will also be covered.

The workshop will host prominent lecturers and cover the following general topics

  • Fundamentals of advanced light microscopy techniques, with the focus on confocal laser scanning microscopy
  • Application examples presented by leading scientists from top-notch European research institutions
  • Image analysis in modern cell biology, with the extension to systems biology

Demonstrations and hands-on sessions will be provided on

  • Modern confocal laser scanning microscopy - state-of-the-art instrument available on site
  • Image analysis in cell biology - appropriate software available on site

Further details will be provided soon.

There will be no registration fee for the attendees. The workshop is primarily intended for Postdoctoral Researchers and PhD students. Nevertheless, other participants are welcome.

The official language of the Workshop is English.

We can accept up to 60 participants to follow the lectures.

However, due to the limited lab space, we can accept a maximum of 12 participants for the hands-on sessions. Therefore, participants interested in attending the hands-on section are invited to write a motivation letter, describing their current research and the expected impact of the workshop participation for their future research. Participants for hands-on section will be selected by the Workshop Scientific Board.

Registration for the Bioimaging Workshop will be open after August 20, 2014.
