Hi Everyone,

The Gatsby Charitable Foundation have provided us with funding to run a 
one-week imaging course for plant students/scientists at Oxford Brookes 
University. The course is virtually free and will run coincidentally 
with the RMS Cell Imaging course at the beginning of September 2006. 
There are only 15 places available so apply early. The course is open to 
UK-based students and scientists only. You can use the application form 
below or write to me and I will send you the real one. Please send your 
completed form to Lucy Haworth, Royal Microscopical Society, 37/38 St. 
Clements, Oxford, OX4 1AJ. Tel: 01865 254763

            *BioImaging for the Plant Sciences

            A one week course for postgraduates and researchers in the
            plant sciences *

*Oxford Brookes University *

*4^th – 8^th September 2006*

*Course Organisers:*

Mark Fricker – Plant Sciences, Oxford University

John Runions – Cell Biology, Oxford Brookes University

Chris Hawes – Cell Biology, Oxford Brookes University

Sponsored by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation this course is open to any 
UK-based Plant Scientists (graduate students, postdocs, and researchers) 
who have an interest in bioimaging or who may wish to learn techniques 
to enable to location of proteins by affinity labelling or live cell 
imaging. Registration fees and accommodation are free, with registrants 
paying only for the dinner on the final evening. The course will run in 
parallel with the annual Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) Cell Imaging 
Techniques Course and will be administered by the RMS.

*Course content:* The course will introduce participants to a range of 
imaging techniques including the principles of fluorescence and confocal 
microscopy, affinity labelling and fluorescent protein expression and 
will include lectures, practicals and hands on time on a range of 
confocal microscopes. The course will conclude with a mini-symposium on 
the application of modern imaging technologies in plant cell and 
molecular biology research. Guest speakers will include Professors Karl 
Oparka (Edinburgh University) and Peter Shaw (John Innes Centre).

Places on the course are restricted to 15 applicants who will be 
accepted on a first come first served basis, although the organisers 
reserve the right to restrict places to one per institution depending on 
demand. If you wish to attend the course please complete the form below 
and return to the Royal Microscopical Society. Applications _must_ be 
accompanied by a cheque or credit card deposit of £135. Please make 
cheques payable to: Royal Microscopical Society.

n.b. Deposits will only be cashed on the allocation of places and will 
be refunded to you (minus £35 for the course dinner) on completion of 
the course. All unsuccessful applications will have cheques for the 
total amount returned to them immediately.**
