[Arabidopsis] Plant imaging course for UK-based students and
jrunions at brookes.ac.uk
Fri May 12 04:20:58 EST 2006
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

*4^th 8^th September 2006*
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.**
