Two courses offered by the The Laboratories for Chemical Biology Umeå (LCBU)

Kurs 1: Introduction to High Throughput Screening- 2 ECTs, web-based

The course is entirely web-based with English course material consisting of text, figures, video lectures, review articles, research articles, and movies. The students study at their own places and examination will be carried out on request.

Kurs 2: Assay development in high throughput screening - 2 ECTS
16-20 November 2015
, Umeå University (registration deadline 2015-10-25

The course gives a practical basis for assay development in high throughput screening. The course is given as complement to the theoretical on-line course “Introduction to high throughput screening” (see above). Passed examination of the theoretical course is a prerequisite for taking the practical.

UCMR/KBC Research Schools grants have expired

The highly successful UCMR/KBC research schools have been supported by 5-year grants from the Swedish Research Council, VR. This has provided unique possibilities to excellent training and courses that also have been open to PhD students and postdocs from departments outside the UCMR/KBC environments. These grants cannot be prolonged and there are currently no opportunities to apply for support for this type of research schools.

UCMR, MIMS, KBC and UPSC will continue to support core facilities and technical platforms and the ambition is to continue to provide training and courses for these important research infrastructures. More information about this will be provided within short.

The faculties have also indicated that they will offer generic courses like for instance research ethics, English writing, reading skills and presentation techniques and possible also other courses. At present it is not decided how these courses will be advertised and administrated but hopefully more information will soon come from the faculties.

We hope that many of the courses developed with support from our research schools will also be provided for PhD students also in the future as the research schools have provided excellent training for young researchers at Umeå University.

Workshop in Photomicrography and Image Processing for Science - 2 ECTS

The course/workshop is designed to give theoretical knowledge on the mechanics of light/fluorescence microscopy and on the use of Photoshop for image processing. We are really pleased that we can give this very popular and excellent microscopy workshop also next year. The new funding received for next year to the UCMR Research School is to support training in the area of Infection and antibiotics within UCMR/MIMS National network in Infection Biology. If the course gets over booked we may need to give priority to PhD students and postdocs the MIMS/UCMR network.

Date: January 21 - 24, 2014
Registration is closed.

Introduction to high throughput screening - 2 ECTS


The course gives a broad introduction to high throughput screening (HTS) that is technique used to identify biologically active small organic molecules through screening of compound libraries with the help of robust test systems and advanced instrumentations.

Participants can start at any time and study in their own paces since the course is entirely web-based. The course material is in English consisting of text and explanatory figures, video lectures, review articles, and movies.
