In Collaboration with

Imaging technologies are widespread in the life science laboratories today. Many biological questions may be addressed applying fluorescence microscopy and live imaging technologies. Advances in the available instruments and technologies are continuously evolving. FluoMicro@ICGEB aims at instructing researchers in the use of fluorescence microscopy in life science applications. The Course examines cutting-edge technologies through real-world examples provided by a panel of experts. Four imaging/analysis stations are organized on the instruments: confocal imaging, live cell microscopy, high-throughput microscopy, image processing and quantitative analysis. To this end morning theoretical sessions will provide the necessary background and afternoon practical sessions will permit hands-on experience on state-of-the-art instruments. Participants will be divided in small groups, which will rotate between the four practical sessions. It is expected that the participants at the end of the Course will be capable of applying fluorescence microscopy and live cell imaging to their experimental needs. A Certificate of Attendance will be provided to all participants.


  • Confocal Imaging
  • High-throughput imaging
  • Time-lapse microscopy
  • Image processing and quantitative analysis



Participation is subject to selection. Only a limited number of participants (40) are admitted to this Course to allow comfortable access to the instruments.

Selection will be based on applicants’ CV and potential benefit for their career. Geographical and gender balance, as well as priority order in the registration, will also be considered.

Deadline for registrations: 8 May 2018 (midday Trieste time)

Registration Fees

Selected participants will be notified and will need to finalise their registration with payment of the relevant registration fee.

Students: €200
Postdocs and Academics: €300
Industry: €400

The registration fee includes:

  • coffee breaks
  • lunches and a get-together on the first day
  • certificate of attendance
  • access to the instruments for hands-on experience


Cancellations must be notified to the Course Secretariat in writing no later than 10 September 2018 (midday Trieste time) and will be subject to a handling fee of Euro 50.
