The most sophisticated microscopy methods of biomolecular interaction and structure analyses were introduced to young researchers and students in the former home of the father of genetics Johan Gregor Mendel – Mendel Museum in the centre of Brno, Czech Republic, during public lectures. Methods were introduced by Michael Stone from the University of California Santa Cruz, one of leading scientists in the field of single molecule FRET microscopy.  Fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy was presented by Mark Hink from the University of Amsterdam, an internationally recognized lecturer and expert in microscopic analysis of biomolecular interactions. .

Within the practical workshop, organized at the Masaryk University Campus, fifteen (mainly Ph.D.) students from CEITEC learned principles and expanded their practical skills in applications of innovative methods of microscopy in their future research studies.

All thanks for a great organization of such an interesting event, called Talking colors: Advanced Microscopy goes to Ctirad Hofr and LifeB team from Jiří Fajkus Research Group. Workshop took place at the end of October, 2017 and you can see some pictures from the event bellow.

The workshop has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 692298 (MEDGENET project).
