About the Practical Course

The practical hands-on oriented course is strongly focused on super-resolution methods in light fluorescence microscopy field. The major objective of the course is to introduce newly available methods and cutting-edge machines to potential users: PhD students, postdocs and researchers in the biology.

The course is operating on the scale behind the resolution barrier for standard fluorescence microscope; from lateral resolution 180 nm down to the 25 nm. To solve this, the course theoretically and practically covers methods from high-resolution confocal microscope through computational super-resolution, structured illumination and stimulated depletion microscopy up to the single molecule localization microscopy.

The course covers theoretical background of all presented super-resolution techniques. Each practical session is designed like a demo and continuous to a hands-on.

Looking forward to seeing you in Prague!
