Advanced Microscopy Research Environment (ADMIRE)

is a cross-scientific graduate school focused on microscopy and micro imaging. Microscopy methods have developed with an increasing rate in the last few decades and have become the foundation for much of modern research in physics, chemistry, materials science, biology and science. The number of microscopy techniques has increased almost exponentially; often a new method has been developed based on a precise problem faced by a researcher in a particular field. ADMIRE focuses on microscopy spanning across a number of research fields, since a lot of modern and future science will depend on already existing and newly developed microscopy methods.

This 4.5 ECTS course will teach you the basics principles of SEM and TEM and you can even work on your own samples. More info here.

Introductory Image Analysis

Peter Magnusson will give a basic introduction to the properties of digital images, how they are created and stored and how different image formats can be handled. It is a 1 ECTS course taught September 17-19.

Analysis with ImageJ

The very popular course on how to analyze microscopy images using Image J that was given in 2016 will be given again this fall. Don't miss it! It is worth 7.5 ECTS and will be taking place weeks 43 & 45-50.

More information about the courses will soon be available here. Also feel free to contact the course responsible for each course with your specific questions and to sign up for the course.
