BioScience AFM – Capturing Dynamics from Single Molecules to Living Cells
Stefan Kaemmer, PhD – JPK Instruments USA
The last three decades have established the atomic force microscope (AFM) as an indispensable tool for high-resolution structural analysis of specimens ranging from single molecules to complex biological systems. AFM currently offers premium spatial resolution of the analyzed samples while simultaneously being able to correlate topography and mechanics at near native/physiological imaging conditions.


Monday, April 17, 2017 - 08:00 to Friday, April 28, 2017 - 12:00 will be presenting two back-to-back seminars on the morning of April 28, 2017. Both seminars will be held in Room 601 of the Gould-Simpson Bldg at the University of Arizona.

9:30 -10:15 am - Advanced cathodoluminescence (CL) techniques for photonics, materials sciences, geology and plasmonics

We are now accepting proposals from scientists who would like to conduct experiments at the Advanced Imaging Center (AIC) at Janelia Research Campus. The deadline to submit a proposal is June 15, 2017.
Application Details
The AIC makes imaging technologies developed at Janelia available to the scientific community before the instruments can be purchased commercially.

The Sixth Charleston Workshop on LIGHT MICROSCOPY FOR THE BIOSCIENCES (LMB) will provide a solid introduction to the concepts and practical applications of light microscopy relevant to modern cell and molecular biology. Students will have opportunities for extensive hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment for optical imaging, digital image processing, fluorescence, confocal/multiphoton microscopy and super-resolution microscopy guided by experienced academic and commercial faculty.
