4th annual Yale Microscopy Workshop

4th annual Yale Microscopy Workshop

Postby arunraje on Thu Apr 09, 2009 9:38 am

Hello fellow microscopy enthusiasts,

We invite you to participate in a three day symposium and workshop.

Yale Microscopy Workshop
June 9 - 11th, 2009
New Haven, CT

free on-line and on-site registration
walk-in clinics, demonstrations and open access microscopes
multi vendor participation

This free annual event is a combination of symposia, hands-on classes and open access to a wide variety of microscopes. It is open to the broader regional research community and only requires registration. Please visit the website for a complete schedule and list of equipment http://microscopy.med.yale.edu

During afternoon symposia, academic investigators will present inspirational research employing emerging and traditional microscopy. The wet-bench classes are linked to the symposia with a thematic technique or application. This year's symposia and class theme is "Imaging Development". A short lecture and hands-on practical "micro-course" will be offered on time resolved imaging and cell tracking with fluorescent Drosophila embryos. This will be coupled with instruction in post-acquisition image analysis using Imaris, Volocity, or MetaMorph software.

Attendees may use any of a large number of microscopes throughout the day provided by Zeiss, Leica, Nikon, Olympus or LaVision. A wide variety of microscopes will be available for use, including confocal LSMs, a laser microdissector, and fluorescent stereo microscopes. The confocal microscopes include all of the recently released instruments that have generated much interest on this listserv. This year we are fortunate to also have 2 fully functional two-photon systems made by LaVision and Zeiss and equipped with Coherent lasers.

One hour reservations can be made for many of the instruments after registration. View this as an opportunity to perform a "surgical strike" exploration of new instrumentation or techniques without any financial or time commitments. Please feel free to come for advice from vendor representatives or to try out a microscope even if you are not attending a class or a seminar.

Slides and live cell samples will be available for use but feel free to bring your own samples. Individuals interested in bringing their own samples should contact:

Ann Haberman, Organizer

Derek Toomre, Co-organizer
