NIC@HMS Workshop Program
A primary goal of the NIC@HMS is to provide training in basic and advanced light microscopy techniques. The NIC@HMS offers lectures and workshops that are FREE and open to members of all non-profit and/or academic institutions.
Our workshops are encouraged but not required for using the microscopes in the NIC@HMS. If you want to use the NIC@HMS microscopes for your research, please fill out the online request for training.
Workshop registration is by application. Apply for upcoming workshops here:
Digital Imaging Workshop : theoretical and practical introduction to cameras used for microscopy, covering CCD, sCMOS, and EMCCD cameras, plus tips on image display and basic ImageJ/Fiji operations. Lectures October 22 afternoon, half day lab session scheduled by student demand. Apply by October 11.
Want to take a different workshop? We’ll take your requests into account when scheduling the next workshop! Use the request form below.
