Corona restrictions

Due to the Corona-related restrictions, we currently only offer custom trainings. If you would like to request training or services, please contact The Bioimaging Team.

Please be advised that you can only work in the Imaging Facility when you have permission to work in the Skou building. You can use the 4 imaging PCs remotely, for access contact The Bioimaging Team.

We aim to offer new introductory and advanced imaging courses once the restrictions are lifted, so make sure to check this page again.

External events and visiting speakers

Course - Introduction to Fluorescence Microscopy

25 - 27 January and 8 February 2021
(Deadline: december 27, 2020)

This is an introductory course being offered by the Graduate School of Health, Aarhus University, spring 2021

The aim is to give the participants an overview of basic fluorescence microscopy techniques, sample preparation, image acquisition and imaging analysis.

The students will obtain basic knowledge of different fluorescence microscopy techniques, sample preparation, image acquisition and image analysis. This should enable students to prepare samples for fluorescence microscopy, choose the appropriate microscope setup, acquire images, analyze images and generate publication figures. This will enable students to participate in research projects involving fluorescence microscopy.

The European Microscopy Congress 2020 in Copenhagen

Europe's largest event dedicated to microscopy and imaging

23 - 28 August 2020, The Bella Center, Copenhagen

The European Microscopy Congress 2020 (emc2020) will be held in Copenhagen. It will bring the world of scientific imaging together in one of Europe's most beautiful cities.

Microscopists, manufacturers, and suppliers will come to share new techniques, new applications, and new technology.

Image Processing & Analysis Course: Advanced Imaging Center, Janelia Research Campus, at Aarhus University.

Cancelled due to corona situation. Expected to be re-scheduled in 2021

April 20, 2020 - April 23, 2020

 (Deadline: March 23, 2020)

Aim and Learning outcomes: The goal of this hands-on course is to survey the fundamentals of how image pixel data can be used to extract biologically meaningful information. Participants will install Fiji and will be given ample opportunity to work on actual images for truly hands-on learning experience and also learn to write macros to speed up analysis. Opportunity to discuss individual projects will also be available.

Content: Lecture and Laboratory Topics include: Image Processing: Fundamentals of digital images, the arts and science behind image processing and the ethics of knowing when not to alter an image, morphometry and object segmentation, Fourier transformation in image processing, the concept of color display and how color affects data interpretation.

Image Analysis: Volumetric and intensity measurement, co-localization analysis, the meaning and application of various co-localization indices, quantitative ratiometric image analysis, particle tracking, analysis of protein dynamics and movement. Writing of macros.

PhD course, Advanced In-vivo Optical imaging techniques, : 14, 15, 16 and 23. January. 6. of February 2020

14, 15, 16 and 23. January. 6. of February 2020

Past event

Title: Advanced In-vivo Optical imaging techniques

Aim: To introduce advanced optical techniques for in vivo imaging and how these can be applied in research projects.

Learning outcomes: The students should be able to understand the basis of different techniques, to learn their pitfalls, disadvantages and advantages, and to plan research projects that include these techniques
