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

Transmitting Science and ForBio are co-organizing a course on "Introduction to Electron Microscopy for Life Sciences".

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 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 already prepared on TEM grid.

Teachers: Emma Rossinyol-Casals and  Alejandro Sánchez-Chardi, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain.

Number of participants: Places are limited to 12 participants and will be occupied by strict registration order.

Cetificate and credits: The course is 26 hours long (14.5 for practice and 11.5 for theory). This course is equivalent to 2 ECTS (European Credit Transfer System) at the Life Science Zurich Graduate School and ForBio.
