2016 Illinois Physical Biology Boot Camp on Super Resolution Fluorescence Microscopy

CPLC Bootcamp 2016 The Center for the Physics of Living Cells (CPLC) laboratories at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) are using the latest single-molecule and single-cell experimental and computational biophysical tools to investigate biological processes such as mechanisms of molecular motors, genome maintenance machinery.

The CPLC is extending their educational outreach to our UIUC colleagues by offering our 2nd Illinois Physical Biology Boot Camp to be held from January 21-23, 2016. The 2016 Boot Camp will offer training in the super-resolution fluorescence microscopy in the laboratory of Paul Selvin in the Department of Physics. The three-day workshop is designed for UIUC graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and researchers in Engineering, MCB, and Chemistry who desire to gain exposure to these techniques for application to their research. The three-day workshop will offer lectures and hands-on experiments in STORM/PALM and FIONA methods.

Applications should be submitted online at https://my.physics.illinois.edu/submit/go.asp?id=972 by December 7, 2015 deadline. Applicants will be notified of acceptance by the end of December, 2015. Registration Fee for accepted applicants ($50 students; $75 postdocs; $125 all others) is due by January 8, 2016. For further questions please e-mail: bootcamp@cplc.illinois.edu.
