Course: advanced applications of fluorescence techniques

INFO Fluorescence Foundation Course
COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT - Advanced applications of fluorescence techniques
July 4-6, 2016
CNR, Institute of Food Science, Avellino, Italy

Course Description
Fluorescence techniques are being used and applied increasingly in academics and industry. The Principles of Fluorescence Techniques course will outline the basic concepts of fluorescence techniques and the successful utilization of the currently available commercial instrumentation.

The course is designed for students who utilize fluorescence techniques and instrumentation and for researchers and industrial scientists who wish to deepen their knowledge of fluorescence applications. Key scientists in the field will deliver theoretical lectures. The lectures will be complemented by the direct utilization of steady-state and lifetime fluorescence instrumentation and confocal microscopy for FLIM and FRET applications provided by leading companies.

Participants are recommended to have at least a bachelor's degree in the life sciences, physical sciences or engineering before attending. Interactions between participants and lecturers will be fostered. Students will have ample opportunity to personally explain their research programs and ask questions about the applicability of specific fluorescence techniques to their course lecturers. Topics addressed in this course include:

• Basic Definitions and Principles of Fluorescence
• Fluorescence Polarization
• Time-resolved Fluorescence
• Instrumentation
• Data Manipulation and Data Analysis
• Fluorescence Probes
• Confocal and Multiphoton Fluorescence Microscopy
• FFS, Fluorescence Fluctuation Spectroscopy
• FLIM, Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging
• Single Molecule Imaging

The number of participants to the course is limited:

- Lectures: Limited to a total of 70 participants (auditorium size).
- Practicals: Limited to a total of 30 participants (interactive, small-group sessions).
- Participation is granted on a first-registered, first-served basis.
