Registration is open for the 20th Annual Workshop (in person) on FRET, FLIM and Metabolic Imaging Microscopy, March 7-11, 2022. To attend the workshop proof of COVID19 vaccination is required.
The W.M. Keck Center for Cellular Imaging, a University of Virginia Imaging Center is sponsoring an advanced course on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM).This year, an additional element will be added: label-free NAD(P)H/FAD metabolic FLIM imaging, which the Center has been publishing several papers on.

Enrollment for Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy 2022 at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Maine is now open. QFM is an intensive lab/lecture course, focusing on fluorescence microscopy in all its forms, including widefield, Confocal, Multiphoton, Decon, Super resolution TIRF, FRET, 2D and 3D image processing (including time-based analysis), etc., with an emphasis on live cell methods. We also encourage students to provide their own specimens such that the hands-on components of the course are as enriching as possible.

Leica Microsystems will be giving an on-site demonstration of their newest confocal instrument, the Stellaris 8. They will also be showing off the Aivia AI Image Analysis Software.

Because of covid-19 concerns, we are asking that people register in advance for time-slots on the instrument to ensure that the room (Life Sciences North 429) does not become crowded (max of 5 people, counting the Leica personnel).
