Registration is open for the 19th Annual Workshop on FLIM and FRET Microscopy, March 9-13, 2020.
The Histochemical society is supporting TWO fellowships (each $1000) to attend the workshop which you can use it towards the workshop tuition fees.

Also, limited amount of financial assistance is available. Hands-on instruction and training on wide-field, confocal, Spectral, and lifetime (FLIM) FRET imaging Microscopy systems. Discussion on best FLIM and FRET imaging and data analysis solutions. Personal attention for a maximum of 25 participants. Internationally recognized faculty.
Individual problem solving.
- For attendees to experience an advanced practical course on Förster (fluorescence) resonance energy transfer FRET) and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) microscopy to image the protein-protein interactions.
- Brief introductions to the principles of fluorescence, microscopy, fluorophores, FRET and FLIM will be made. Emphasis willbe on practical aspects, hands-on individual instruction at the instruments followed by data analysis and interpretation.
- Problem-solving discussions will address questions of fluorophore choices, the most suitable systems to achieve specific research objectives, qualitative vs. quantitative analysis and muchmore. Introduction for an unique image processing and analysis software (PFRET) will be given for training.
- Live-cell specimens provided; participant's own specimens are welcome.
The AIF is a shared core facility under the Division of Science and Technology at CSI that houses advanced imaging systems including confocal, live-cell, transmission electron, scanning electron, and atomic force microscopes as well as dedicated lab space for specimen processing and analysis suites to allow researchers to prepare, image, and analyze samples at a single site. This facility is open to research scientists from all CUNY campuses. Scientists belonging to other academic institutions and industrial scientists are also invited to utilize the facility.
