Workshop on Advanced Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM) methods 5-8 December 2022
This 4-day workshop aims to highlight the advanced correlative light and electron microscopy (CLEM) techniques. Participants will learn the latest workflows on how to correlate fluorescence microscopy images with high resolution EM images obtained from state-of-the-art equipment.
Application deadline: The registration closes on 7th November 2022.
Duration: 4 days
Location: Lectures at KBC Building and laboratory demonstrations at UCEM and BICU at Umeå university.
Preliminary program: Preliminary program can be found HERE
Breaks/Refreshments: Lunch, Coffee, cookies and fruits will be provided.
Number of participants: Up to 16
Speakers and Trainers:
Bettina Zens, Institute of Science and Technology, Austria
Workshop Content: The workshop includes both theory lectures and practical sessions on In-resin preserved florescence for CLEM, Tokuyasu ultramicrotome sectioning combined with staining techniques on sections, Cryo-CLEM and cryo-FIB milling, as well as opportunities to discuss specific research projects and receive practical advice. Technical challenges and new ideas will be discussed, and the participants are welcome to contribute with their experiences.
Target Audience: This workshop is supported by the Nordic EMBL partnership for Molecular Medicine and welcomes applications from its members and other institutions. Participants are required to have practical experience in both light and electron microscopy. Due to limited number of places, registration is based on a selection process. Selected lectures will be open to a larger range of participants and can be registered for under a ‘lecture only’ registration.
Certificate/Credits: A course certificate will be provided to successful participants and a recommendation for 1,5 ECTS.
