Advanced imaging

This five-day residential course is an introduction for talented postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are looking to learning new and emerging biology & techniques around single cell and single molecule analysis. They will be exposed to “omics” technologies and high throughput techniques, as well as cutting-edge light microscopy techniques.

Imaging microscopy has advanced rapidly as powerful investigation platforms and have wide applications in various biomedical research. The integration of advanced imaging platforms with high-throughput and next generation “omics” tools to analyse biological events and signalling circuits at single cell and single molecule levels have led to many breakthrough discoveries in the field of cell and molecular biology.

The scope of the research topics covered in the course will cover most recent concepts in cell and developmental biology, gene regulation and chromatin biology, intracellular trafficking and signal transduction, host-pathogen interaction, neuroscience and cancer biology. 

The course will be conducted in English. Applications must be received by 15 May 2015.
