Training Workshop 2018
Microscopy, Optics and Imaging
(Sponsored by Empire Genomics and Zeiss Canada)

Download Announcement

Workshop Trainees are introduced to highly advanced software and microscopes. Trainees learn specialized principles of microscopy via lectures, bench work and a variety of techniques such as image acquisition, data analysis and archiving in the GCCRD. Trainees enjoy a unique opportunity to study whole genomes, single cells, cellular components and functions through advanced molecular imaging, micro-array analysis and functional genomics. The workshops cover a wide range of disciplines, such as molecular and cytogenetic methodologies, the use of imaging software, and other techniques pertaining to the GCCRD. Target groups for training are graduate level students in the biological sciences, medical students, MD/PhD students, residents, post doctoral, clinical and visiting fellows, clinician-scientists, research associates and technicians. In addition, the training of high school and undergraduate students, as well as the education of teachers and the public, is a firm foundation of the training program. This adds to the general knowledge of health science and novel technologies, and may facilitate later career choices.

Several workshops are organized each year in collaboration with our industrial partners, Applied Spectral Imaging Inc., Invitrogen Life Technologies Inc., Carl Zeiss Canada Ltd., Applied Spectral Imaging, and MetaSystems Group Inc.

Please go to the Strategic Training Program website (Innovative Technologies in Multidisciplinary Health Research Training) for an in-depth look at past workshops. The website also contains information on how to apply, research and training opportunities, ITMHRT mentors and their contact information.
