LIGHT MICROSCOPY FOR THE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

March 23-28, 2002

The Carolina Workshop on LIGHT MICROSCOPY FOR THE BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES
will cover basic concepts of light microscopy and introduce advanced
techniques relevant to modern cell and molecular biology. Students will
gain extensive hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment for
optical imaging, digital image processing, and confocal and multiphoton
microscopy guided by experienced academic instruc-tors. A commercial
staff representing leading microscopic manufacturers will make available

the latest and most advanced instrumentation for light microscopy, image

detection and computerized image analysis. Stu-dents are encouraged to
bring their own specimens for analysis. Lectures and laboratory
exercises include:

Optics of Image Formation - Microscope Alignment - Phase, Reflection
Interference and Polarization Microscopy - Differential Interference
Contrast Microscopy - Video and Digital Cameras - Contrast Enhancement -

Ion Imaging and Fluorescent Probes - Fluorescent Proteins (GFP, RFP,
etc.) - Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer - Laser Scanning Confocal

Microscopy - Multiphoton Microscopy - Deconvolution and 3-D
Reconstruction

Tuition:  $1000.00
Application Deadline: February 1, 2001
Principal Instructors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill:
John J. Lemasters, M.D., Ph.D. - Kenneth A. Jacobson, Ph.D. - Edward D.
Salmon, Ph.D.

CAROLINA WORKSHOPS are intensive hands-on laboratory courses offered
several times a year designed to teach cutting edge methods in molecular

biology and biotechnology.  Most participants already hold M.D. or Ph.D.

degrees, or are advanced predoctoral students.  Courses are designed for

novice students as well as for individuals with prior experience. All
students benefit from in-depth interaction with instructors.

TO APPLY, send a curriculum vita and a brief letter describing your
research interests and reasons for enrolling. Because previous courses
have been oversubscribed, applicants should contact the program office
as soon as possible.  Please indicate your complete mailing address,
telephone/fax number and E-mail address.  Full consideration will be
given to applications received by February 1, 2002. For further
