Principles of Fluorescence Techniques 2014
Take advantage of this opportunity to expand your knowledge with the leaders in the fluorescence field. Register today for the Principles of Fluorescence Techniques course 2014, organized by ISS in collaboration with Imaging at Illinois and the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The course, designed for students, academic researchers and industrial scientists who wish to expand their knowledge of fluorescence techniques, instrumentation and their applications, will be hosted and held at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign.
Lectures delivered by key scientists in the field will give the participants a deep understanding of the theoretical aspects of fluorescence (excitation and emission spectra, polarization measurements, lifetime and time-resolved anisotropy measurements), fluorescence microscopy (single- and multi-photon confocal images, FLIM, FRET, fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy, single-molecule spectroscopy) and plasmonics. The lectures are complemented by hands-on experiments with commercial instrumentation (spectrofluorometers and confocal microscopes) where the participants, working in small groups, acquire measurements and perform data analysis on routine samples. The course fosters a close interaction of the participants with the lecturers: students will have ample opportunity to personally explain their research programs and ask questions about the applicability of specific fluorescence techniques to the course lecturers.
Participants are recommended to have at least a bachelor's degree in the life sciences, physical sciences or engineering before attending. For the best interaction between students and lecturers, the number of participants for the lectures is limited to 70 and the number for the practical experiments is limited to 30. Registration for the course closes March 21st, 2014.To learn more about the course please visit www.fluorescence-foundation.org
