FluoMicro@ICGEB is aimed at instructing young researchers to use microscopy techniques in life science research. The course will explore cutting-edge technologies through real-world examples provided by a panel of experts. Theoretical sessions will provide fundamentals of microscopy to aid the hands-on-training sessions. It is expected that the participants will be able to conduct their own microscopy experiments for their research work after the workshop.
