November 14 thru November 18, 2022

Target audience:

PhD candidates and postdocs. An introduction course like the Basic Microscopy Course is a prerequisite for the Advanced Microscopy Course.

Study load:
44 hours

ECTS points:
1,6 points

Short course description:

The course will take place at the AMC (core facility Cellular Imaging). The participants will focus in depth on specific advanced imaging techniques, including deconvolution and imaging on the Thunder microscope, TEM-EDX imaging and correlative microscopy (bridging fluorescence microscopy and electron microscopy). Also AI scripts, deep learning and data analysis are included.
