The CSIR- Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) is organizing a three-day Workshop on Applications of Electron Microscopy in Life Sciences from September 23 to 25, 2020. This three-day workshop is aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skill-set of students, research fellows, faculty and staff working in the area of life sciences and would include both theory and practical sessions.
The focus would be on various techniques, applications and sample preparation methods with intensive practical sessions including hands-on sessions. The latest developments, especially in the area of Cryo-EM, will be discussed and the course would also cover basic TEM/SEM operation and maintenance/troubleshooting issues.
At the end of the workshop, participants are expected to appreciate the basics of TEM/SEM along with the ability to integrate EM tools/experiments in the workflow of their research projects by selecting the appropriate technique from a variety of available techniques and then optimizing it for obtaining the best solution for their research problems. The small number of participants will be ensured to encourage close interaction and lively discussions.
Sessions would cover TEM & SEM principles and applications, practical sessions on TEM & SEM sample preparation techniques including negative staining, cell/tissue embedding, ultramicrotomy, imaging and recording data and image interpretation.
B.Sc./ M.Sc./ B.Tech/ M.Tech/ Ph.D. students, young researchers from academic institutions and private organizations/ industry staff are invited to apply.
