Course

Advanced Course Microscopy and Spectroscopy in Food and Plant Sciences

EPS-VLAG Course: The course will cover the theory behind several advanced microscopic and micro-spectroscopic techniques that have a wide range of applications in both the Food and Plant Sciences.

Organised by Graduate Schools EPS and VLAG, in co-operation with Wageningen Light Microscopy Centre and MicroSpectroscopy Research Facility
Date

Tue 18 January 2022 until Thu 20 January 2022

The MicroSpectroscopy Research Facility and the Wageningen Light Microscopy Centre of Wageningen University will organize a VLAG & EPS funded advanced practical course for postdocs and PhD candidates. The course will cover the theory behind several advanced microscopic and micro-spectroscopic techniques that have a wide range of applications in both the Food and Plant Sciences.

The following topics will be treated during the lectures with examples of application in Food and Plant sciences: microscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, confocal microscopy, Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) imaging, Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM), image analysis, 3D Imaging, time- and spectrally-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF), super-resolution imaging and multi-photon imaging.

The hands-on training during this course will be in the form of group assignments. For additional individual training after this course, we would like to refer you to the MicroSpectroscopy Research Facility and the Wageningen Light Microscopy Centre.
