From July 4-7, 2023, PicoQuant holds its 15th International Course on “Time-resolved Microscopy and Correlation Spectroscopy”. The course provides an in-depth introduction to the world of time-resolved fluorescence microscopy with a focus on life science applications. The program combines lectures by experts in the field with interactive practical sessions on systems from the market-leading companies Nikon, Olympus, Zeiss, and PicoQuant as well as opportunities for discussion and networking.
This year’s lecturers include:
Prof. Jelle Hendrix (Biomedical Research Institute, Hasselt, Belgium)
Prof. Stefanie Weidtkamp-Peters (Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf, Germany)
Dr. Samaneh Rezvani (PicoQuant GmbH, Berlin, Germany)
Dr. Olaf Schulz (PicoQuant GmbH, Berlin, Germany)
The course’s content is geared towards both novice researchers as well as those having some previous experience with time-resolved methods and applications. The lectures and practical sessions provide participants with a better understanding of the following topics, methods, and applications:
Instrumentation and data analysis
Correlation spectroscopy methods: FCS, FCCS, FLCS
Imaging methods: FLIM, rapidFLIM, FRET, FLIM-FRET
Single molecule microscopy
Furthermore, participants will also have the opportunity to interact directly with experts, foster collaborations, see confocal microscopes from various companies live in action as well as talk to and socialize with fellow scientists.
