FEBS Advanced Course


Faria Khan participated in the one FEBS Advanced Course "Functional Imaging of Nuclear Organisation & Signaling”  which took place in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The microscope setups on which the training was provided, are part of  the van Leeuwenhoek Centre for Advanced Microscopy (LCAM) in Amsterdam, in which the research groups of Molecular Cytology (Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences, UvA), of Cell Biology and Histology of the Academic Medical Center (AMC) and the Cellular Biophysics Group, Dept of Cell Biology Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) collaborate and organize their advanced microscopy infrastructure.

 The training included lectures and practical training sessions on  fluorescence microscopy techniques and data analysis such as time-lapse microscopy, confocal microscopy, total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRFM), super resolution microscopy (PALM, STORM) and expansion microscopy. The course also covered quantitative methods such as fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), photoconversion and photoactivation, and included state-of-the-art data analysis and image processing techniques. For Faria, it was a great experience to learn highly advanced optical microscopy techniques from experts, including the introduction to post-imaging data processing.
