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

Super-resolution (MINFLUX & STED) workshops (late April & late May 2024) remote options

Both the Core Microscopy Facility at Scripps Research in La Jolla, CA and the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology Core Facilities at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign are hosting super-resolution (MINFLUX & STED) workshops featuring lectures by Nobel Laureate Dr Stefan Hell.

The West Coast Super-Resolution Workshop at Scripps will be held from Apr. 29th to May 3rd. Sessions will include theoretical and practical talks on imaging, sample preparation, and data analysis. Attendance for this workshop may be either in-person or online. Time will also be available (for both and MINFLUX and STED Facility Line microscopes) for in-person attendees to image their samples. Early registration is recommended, as available time at the microscopes is  limited. Registration for the workshop may be done at: https://bit.ly/3SGTL5E

The Midwest Advanced MINFLUX and Super Resolution Workshop will be held May 20th to the 24th. Sixteen speakers will cover MINFLUX and STEDYCON technology, sample preparation, and label development.  A limited number of participants will be able to image their samples with a STEDYCON and MINFLUX microscopes. Both in person and remote attendees are welcome. More information can be found here. https://www.igb.illinois.edu/corefacilities/workshop
