Events during July 2019
The EM Summer School aims to provide a basic training in both the theory and practice of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The course covers imaging, diffraction and chemical microanalysis as well as the highly important area of sample preparation.
THE COURSE IS DESIGNED FOR BEGINNERS AND THOSE WITH SOME EXPERIENCE IN THE IDENTIFICATION OF MEDICALLY IMPORTANT FUNGI. THE FIRST HALF-DAY WILL CONCENTRATE ON YEAST IDENTIFICATION, THE REMAINDER OF THE COURSE WILL FOCUS ON DERMATOPHYTES AND OTHER MOULDS ENCOUNTERED IN HOSPITAL MICROBIOLOGY LABORATORIES. IT WILL INCLUDE A NUMBER OF SPECIES FEATURED IN EXTERNAL QUALITY ASSESSMENT SCHEMES
A mandatory 4 week basic course in cervical cytology designed for trainees working within the Cervical Screening Programme. This course is completed with a further 5 days of follow up training.
This Course utilises many different sample types and fluorescent probes (DNA stains, classic antibody labels and fluorescent proteins) and these are chosen to best demonstrate particular problems and techniques. Focus is on the techniques they enable and the problems they generate, which will be applicable to any sample types.
A day long short course aimed at current or prospective trainers in diagnostic laboratories.
