20th Annual Advanced Imaging Methods Workshop AIM 2023

Meet us @20th Annual FLIM, FRET and Metabolic Imaging Workshop 

The workshop will be an intensive lecture/laboratory series that will enable participants to develop theoretical and hands-on expertise with various FRET/FLIM/FLIRR microscopy techniques. Attendees will closely interact with the teaching faculty and assistants while using modern research grade microscopes equipped with essential filters, objective lenses, high-sensitivity detectors (PMTs), and state-of-the-art user-friendly software. These 5 days intensive course includes morning lectures and afternoon hands on training on FRET/FLIM/FLIRR microscopy systems. Experienced staff from universities and industry will provide instruction. With a maximum enrollment of 25 students, there will be ample opportunity for attendees to work with various state-of-the-art microscopes, and image processing software.

The W.M. Keck Center for Cellular Imaging, a University of Virginia Imaging Center is sponsoring an advanced course on fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM).This year, an additional element will be added: label-free NAD(P)H/FAD metabolic FLIM imaging, which the Center has been publishing several papers on. The focus will be on the fluorescence lifetime redox ratio (FLIRR), a novel metric to investigate both, mitochondrial OXPHOS and cytosolic glycolysis, accompanied by a quantitative analysis package which attendees will be trained on at the workshop.
