What is the The Maine Microscopy Foundations and Fundamentals course ?
The Maine Microscopy: Foundations and Fundamentals course is designed for Maine scientists at all levels, including graduate students, postdoctoral trainees, research assistants, and junior faculty who want to fully understand current imaging technology and how technical decisions impact final image products.
What can you expect from it ?
The course runs for 10 days and covers everything from the basic optics principles necessary to understand the origin of an image to the advanced technology that equipped high-end microscopes. The course will consist of lectures from a slate of expert faculty, mixed with practical exercises and journal club discussions.
How much the course cost ?
There is no tuition or registration fee for this course, which includes housing and meals. However, students must fund their own travel to and from MDIBL.
This research training opportunity is supported by an Institutional Development Award (IDeA) from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under grant number P20GM103423.
The IDeA program builds research capacities in states that historically have had low levels of NIH funding by supporting basic, clinical and translational research; faculty development; and infrastructure improvements.
