Bioimaging nanocourses -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Date :The PHYME Post-doc and PhD Student Association in collaboration with the 6th floor CMU Bioimaging Service are pleased to announce a "Microscopy nanocourse" which will take place Friday Dec 6th


Description: This second nanocourse is a one day work-shop introducing basic concepts in microscopy as well as covering practical considerations for getting the most of out of your microscopy experiments. It consists of a half-day lecture section in the morning followed by a practical demonstration at the 6th floor Bioimaging Facility in the afternoon.


> The LECTURE SECTION IS OPEN TO ALL without registration, although regsitration by email at Udo.Hasler(at) would be appreciated for a head count as coffee and croissants will be served during the break


> The PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATION IS LIMITED TO 12 PARTICIPANTS and registration on a first-come first-serve basis by email at Udo.Hasler(at) is required
