About the course

This course aims at teaching the basics of light microscopy & the theoretical skills required for the application of optical imaging technologies.

It targets every level of research staff, from PG students to principal investigators.

The course is divided into seven modules covering essential topics of basic & some advanced light microscopy.

The main modules of the course are:

  • the nature of light
  • basics of light microscopy
  • confocal microscopy
  • sample preparation
  • live specimen imaging
  • image formation & restoration
  • digital camera technology
  • image analysis
  • advanced light microscopy technologies

The delivery of these topics is designed to improve the understanding of optical imaging methods so participants can get the best out of their imaging experiments.

The course is a cross-Centre initiative & due to Covid-19 measures, all lectures will be delivered online as a two-day event.
