ADM Course 2023
ADM offers a 7.5 hours course on Advanced Optical and Fluorescence Microscopy and BioImage Analysis.
This course targets research staff who need Bioimaging: Phd students, Postdocs and research staff from IRB Barcelona and institutions at the PCB. The course is free 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.
The course capacity is about 30 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 during the week 2-6 OCT, first-come first-served.
- research staff from public institutions at the PCB: from OCT 17th, upon availability of seats, first-come first-served and priority to junior research staff who has not attended earlier editions.
- research staff from other public institutions and private entities: upon availability.
