Description

ILS doctoral program is responsible for the course. The course is elective.

The course introduces relevant light and electron microscopy techniques (theory and applications) in biological sciences. The course is meant for all students and researchers who are interested in learning more about modern imaging techniques.

The course is meant for all students and researchers who are interested in learning more about modern imaging techniques and their applications.

By the end of the course students will have basic knowledge to get started with their own imaging projects, and will be able to understand imaging data presented in published papers and seminars.

During doctoral and master’s studies.
