advanced fluorescence techniques

september 22-26, 2009 | rio de janeiro, brazil

The second South American workshop on Advanced Fluorescence Techniques: From Spectroscopy to Microscopy will consist of theoretical lectures, a hands-on laboratory course and computer-based training on data analysis and simulations. It will focus on the basics and advanced concepts of fluorescence spectroscopy techniques. The laboratory course is designed for students, researchers and industrial scientists who intend to extend their knowledge of fluorescence spectroscopy techniques.

Key scientists in the field will deliver theoretical lectures. The lectures will be complemented by the direct utilization of fluorescence instrumentation. Topics addressed in this course include:

  • Basic Definitions and Principles of Fluorescence and Introduction to Microscopy
  • Fluorescence Polarization
  • Time-resolved Fluorescence
  • Instrumentation
  • Data Manipulation and Data Analysis
  • GFP Fluorescence
  • Confocal and Multiphoton Fluorescence Microscopy
  • FCS, Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy Techniques
  • Introduction to Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging and Particle Tracking
  • Single Molecule Imaging
  • and More!

Theoretical classes are open but registration is needed. The hands-on laboratory course is limited to 20 participants. The registration deadline is August 21, 2009.
