EMBO Practical Course

About event

CEITEC MU host EMBO Course on Lightsheet Microscopy

Light sheet microscopy is an established imaging technology that enables the recording of large biological specimens with minimal photo-damage.

It opens new avenues to study cell biological and developmental processes with unprecedented imaging speed and facilitates systems biology approaches by quantitative imaging of living systems in their entirety.

This new installment of the course at CEITEC Brno will focus on the emerging trends in the field, namely, the combination of light sheet imaging with other imaging modalities in a correlative approach and probing the physical properties of living systems imaged with the light sheet technology. 

Given the scientific focus of the hosting organisation, we particularly welcome students bringing applications of light sheet microscopy to imaging plants and viral infections.

This summer, CEITEC MU will host the prestigious EMBO Practical Course "Light Sheet Microscopy“. Previously organized at Max-Planck Institute CBG, it is the first time the course will be organized outside Dresden. For the organisation of such event, CEITEC MU is a perfect place, because there is already an existing advanced Infrastructure for lightsheet microscopy located at the research groups of Pavel Plevka and Karel Riha and at the Cellular Imaging Core Facility, said the main organizer Pavel Tomancak. Besides that, several companies will bring their newest cutting edge lightsheet microscopes and tools for data analysis and several top scientist will deliver presentations about the newest technological developments in the field.

Please register HERE by April 30, 2022.
