ADM Course 2022
ADM offers a 11 hours course on Advanced Optical and Fluorescence Microscopy and Image Analysis.
This course targets Phd students, Postdocs and research staff from IRB Barcelona and institutions at the PCB, and will be held in person.
Registration is based on first come first served.
Attendance is strongly recommended for 1st year Phd candidates at IRB, who have guaranteed seat in the course.
Participation to all 5 sessions is compulsory / strongly expected for all confirmed participants.
The course capacity is about 60 seats.
Attendance is expected for all days of the course for people who register.
Registration will be prioritized this way:
- IRB research staff: automatic confirmation, first-come first-served.
- research staff from public institutions at the PCB: upon availability of seats, first-come first-served, confirmation by April 22.
- research staff from other public institutions: upon availability, confirmation by April 25.
- research staff from private entities: upon availability, selection case-to-case, priority given to users of the IRB facility. Confirmation by April 25.
