Coronavirus information for participants
The onsite course and conference programme at EMBL has been paused until the end of June 2020.
We aim to continue offering our advanced training for the scientific community however we safely can. While some events have been cancelled, many have been rescheduled for a later date and others will be delivered as virtual events.
Registration is open for onsite courses and conferences starting after 1 July and for the virtual events. All registration fees for any events which don’t take place due to the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.
More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.
This course offers the opportunity to acquire a portfolio of cutting edge EM methods, allowing the participants to integrate EM tools and readouts into the workflow of their own cell biological research projects. The course focuses on teaching the theoretical background and the latest practical developments in the field.
Students, early-stage post-docs and technicians are encouraged to apply.
- State of the art fixation including cryo-methods
- Correlative light and electron microscopy
- Molecular mapping (immuno-EM)
- Three-dimensional EM imaging using tomography and serial imaging
- Advanced quantitative image analysis (stereology, nanomorphomics).
You will gain an intensive overview of the most advanced methods in electron microscopy for cell biology. We will provide training in project/experimental design, often adapted to each of the students projects. Moreover, the course has been running for over 30 years and has contributed to the creation of a wide community of electron microscopists (both students and teachers) all over the world.
