Upcoming Events

  • Mar 02

    New Lightsheet Z1 Install

    Mar 02 (All day) to Mar 06 (All day)

    Installation of new Lightsheet Z1 system.  This is a new, hybrid system that is better designed for imaging large, cleared tissues.

  • Mar 09

    LSM 880 with AiryScan Installation

    Mar 09 (All day) to Mar 13 (All day)

    Installation of new LSM 880 confocal microscope.  This system features the AiryScan unit that removes the physical pinhole and allows for imaging of dimmer samples at higher resolution.

  • Mar 19

    Digital Analysis with ImageJ

    Mar 19 (All day) to Mar 21 (All day)


    Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center (HMS)

    This intensive 3-day workshop taught by Dr. Lai Ding, manager of the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center Enhanced Neuroimaging Core, introduces ImageJ, its basic functions, and its macro programming capabilities. Using real imaging projects performed at the Harvard NeuroDiscovery Center's Enhanced Neuroimaging Core, Dr. Ding will demonstrate common image analysis tasks such as basic image processing, stack alignment, cell counting and measurement.

  • Apr 08

  • Apr 29

    Analytical & Quantitative Light Microscopy

    Apr 29 (All day) to May 08 (All day)


    Marine Biology Labs, Woods Hole

    AQLM is a comprehensive and intensive course in light microscopy for researchers in biology, medicine, and material sciences. This course provides a systematic and in-depth examination of the theory of image formation and application of digital methods for exploring subtle interactions between light and the specimen. This course emphasizes the quantitative issues that are critical to the proper interpretation of images obtained with modern wide-field and confocal microscopes.
