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.

The course is designed to give theoretical knowledge on the mechanics of light/fluorescence microscopy and on the use of Photoshop for image processing. In addition, fluorescent microscopes are set up in the same room so that hands-on training is coupled with theoretical learning. A preliminary course schedule is given below for more specific details. You are also encouraged to bring samples of your own to the workshop and to have a laptop computer with Adobe Photoshop version CS4.

This course is taught by a team of very talented scientific microscopy photographers and microscopy experts from BergmanLabora AB. BergmanLabora AB sponsors this course with Nikon microscopes, imaging equipment and their product specialists who sell Nikon microscopes, cameras and software and can answer any questions regarding this equipment.

Michael Peres is Chairman of the Biomedical Photographic Communications Department and is a professor at the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology.
