A volunteer and collaborative effort to bring information about shared microscopy facilities to the University of Arizona and the community.

FRET, FLIM, and Metabolic Imaging Microscopy Workshop - March 4-8, 2024 (Charlottesville, VA)

The W.M. Keck Center for Cellular Imaging, a University of Virginia Imaging Center is sponsoring an advanced hands-on training course on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM), and Metabolic Imaging (NADH/FAD/Tryptophan). In metabolic imaging, the focus will be on the fluorescence lifetime redox ratio (FLIRR), a novel metric to investigate both, mitochondrial OXPHOS and cytosolic glycolysis and quantitative data analysis.

The Histochemical society is supporting TWO fellowships (each $1000) to attend the workshop which you can use it towards the workshop tuition fees. Please visit the web site for the 2024 award by clicking this link-  http://histochemicalsociety.org/Awards/Awards.aspx . Also, limited amount of financial assistance is available with the support from BINA (Bioimaging North America).

  • Hands-on instruction and training on confocal, Spectral, lifetime (FLIM) FRET, and Metabolic imaging (FLIRR) Microscopy systems.
  • Discussion on best FLIM, FRET, and metabolic imaging (FLIRR) and data analysis solutions.
  • Personal attention for a maximum of 20 participants.
  • Internationally recognized faculty.
  • Individual problem solving.
  • Live-cell specimens provided; participant's own specimens are welcome.
