Transmitting Science and ForBio course: Introduction to Electron Microscopy for Life Sciences

Transmitting Science and ForBio are organizing a collaborative course on Electron Miscroscopy. This course gives an introduction to both Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). It covers electron microscopy principles and theory, as well as different fields of application, operation modes and image interpretation. It is aimed at beginners and intermediate users of electron microscopes in life sciences. The course has a limited number of participants to allow small groups during practical sessions.

After having taken this course, the participants should be able to align the microscopes, identify the most common aberrations and understand the principles of image generation in electron microscopy. Participants can also bring some samples for analysis pre-prepared on TEM grids or SEM stubs.
