The Light Microscopy summer school is an annual, residential three day course held at the University of York covering the principles of light microscopy. Participants are also trained in practical issues surrounding light microscopy. After introductory presentations, the course is taught predominantly through hands-on practical sessions.
The course is suitable for both novices and more experienced users wanting to gain a greater understanding of the microscope and feedback every year is always fantastic (see below). Students come from a range of backgrounds within both research and commercial organisations. All have benefited greatly from the Course and leave with increased understanding and skills.
The course is immediately followed by a two day hands-on Confocal Course - Getting the most from your Confocal and a one day Grain Sizing Course.
The registration fee includes:
- 3 nights en-suite accommodation (Sunday to Tuesday inclusive) on the pleasant University of York campus;
- All meals, including the course dinner on the Tuesday evening at a restaurant in York, and lunch and daytime refreshments.
The LM Summer School has previously been awarded 19 CPD points from the IBMS.
The LM Summer School is very popular and early booking is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
