Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

Quantitative Imaging: From Acquisition to Analysis

March 29-April 12th, 2022, Long Island, NY

Combining careful image acquisition with rigorous computational analysis allows extraction of quantitative data from light microscopy images that is far more informative and reproducible than what can be seen by eye. This course will focus on advanced quantitative fluorescence microscopy techniques used for imaging a range of biological specimens, from tissues to cells to single molecules. The course is designed for quantitative cell and molecular biologists, biophysicists and bioengineers.

We provide a thorough treatment of the complete process of quantitative imaging, from the photons emitted from the sample to the extraction of biologically meaningful measurements from digital images. Material is covered in lectures, discussion groups and hands-on quantitative exercises using commercial microscopes and open-source image analysis tools.

Focus on Microscopy - 2022

Focus on Microscopy 2022

April 10-13th, 2022, Porto, Portugal

FOM2022 continues a long-standing (since 1988), yearly conference series on the latest innovations and developments in (optical) microscopy and their application in biology, medicine, and the material sciences.

The Porto conference will start on Sunday morning April 10 with free tutorials, followed by parallel sessions, Flash poster presentations and a plenary opening session with invited speakers at the end of the afternoon. The first day will be closed with a welcome reception. The tentative program will be available later this year, and can be found under “Program” on this web site. A guided walking tour of the sights of Porto’s historical center and a conference dinner are planned after the closing of the conference on Wednesday, April 13th.

University of Chicago Marine Biological Laboratory

Analytical & Quantitative Light Microscopy

April 27-May 6th, 2022, Woods Hole, MA

A comprehensive and intensive course in light microscopy for researchers in biology, medicine, and material sciences. This course provides a systematic and in-depth examination of the theory of image formation and application of video and digital methods for exploring subtle interactions between light and the specimen. This course emphasizes the quantitative issues that are critical to the proper interpretation of images obtained with modern wide-field and confocal microscopes. This course is limited to 32 students.

Light-Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy Conference

May 9-May 14th, 2022, Woods Hole, MA

Multi-dimensional live and fixed microscope data can be collected in many ways and with a wide range of imaging modalities to help advance cellular, animal and large sample/cleared sample imaging to the next level. Currently, many courses focus on general optical principles and the use of conventional microscope platforms, such as widefield fluorescence, confocal and multiphoton imaging. However, none of these courses are specifically designed to demystify rapidly evolving and increasingly prescient methods such as light-sheet imaging.
