COMULIS Training School: “A Practical Approach to CLEM”
- 1st COMULIS Training School on Correlated Multimodal Imaging
- Sunday February 9th – Friday February 14th, 2020
- Training school participants: 20
- Target audience: European research scientists, students and facility staff
- Registration deadline is November 22nd, 2019.
COMULIS (Correlated Multimodal Imaging in Life Sciences) is an EU-funded COST Action that aims at fueling urgently needed collaborations in the field of correlated multimodal imaging, promoting and disseminating its benefits through showcase pipelines, and paving the way for its technological advancement and implementation as a versatile tool in biological and preclinical research.
Within the time frame of the COMULIS COST Action, we will organize six training schools and workshops in the field of correlative multimodal imaging. The Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) is delighted to be hosting the first training school which will be held in Oeiras, Portugal on Sunday February 9th to Friday February 14th 2020.
This first training school is called “A Practical Approach to CLEM”. The school is targeting users who are interested in establishing Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM) in their home laboratories, but who may have limited technical resources and training in this area. As such the School will be focused on getting new laboratories set up to do CLEM. By inviting an array of international CLEM experts to Portugal, we aim to show the participants CLEM procedures that can straightforward to duplicate. Furthermore, we aim to give the training School participants the knowledge and skills to start doing CLEM at their home institution.
We cordially invite scientists from all across Europe who are interested in setting up CLEM experiments in their home laboratories to join us in Portugal. We also invite companies interested in working with these new CLEM experts, to join us in our sponsorship program.
This COMULIS Training School targets participants who are interested in establishing Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM) in their home laboratories. Participants will gain hands-on-experience in light and electron microscopy and interact with experts in the field.
This Training School targets users with some Electron Microscopy and some Light Microscopy experience who are interested in implementing combined Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy Workflows in their research.
MODULES / RESOURCES
- Introductory and applications lectures about Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy
- Practical sessions with hands-on training about pre-embedding Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy
- Advanced lectures detailing steps beyond these first initial workflows and the introduction to techniques to decide which of many Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy workflows is appropriate for a given project
