We repeated last years successful event for the Oslo node of IBA in beautiful surroundings in the Oslo fjord! We braved the changing weather conditions and had fun getting to know each other through great conversations and discussions planning future collaborations while enjoying great food!

Future meetings with equal success are greatly anticipated!

Upcoming EMBL course in Super-Resolution Microscopy

This is a reminder to all members that IBA will fund attendance at courses organised by EMBL.

For instance, one upcoming course organised by EMBL is a six day advanced course on fluorescence super-resolution microscopy that will cover both theory and practical application of current super-resolution microscopy techniques to biological questions.

The course will take place in Heidelberg, Germany from July 8th to 13th 2019 and the deadline for applying is April 25th!

Please visit the EMBL course site for more information on the course and for the link to apply.

Also, please have a look at EMBLs website for an overview of other available courses. Perhaps there is something that fits perfectly with your research!
