We cordially invite you to be part of this year’s summer school where we will focus on various modern state-of-the-art microscopes that allow visualization of fine structures within cells and also their chemical composition.

The plenary lectures will provide a general overview of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy and label-free Raman imaging while the hands-on sessions will address various relevant samples prepared by the participants either previously or during the course. School participants will form small groups of 4-5 people and rotate various microscope stations. Data evaluation/image processing will be part of the schedule as well as group discussions.
