Module code: CFS7028-B
This module will provide you with specialist knowledge in the principles and application of microscopy, includinglight microscopy, wide-field fluorescence and confocal laser scanning microscopy, scanning electron microscopyand transmission electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, super-resolution microscopy and medicalimaging. The chemistry and physics of fluorescent stains, lasers and time-resolved techniques will be examinedas important tools of advanced imaging techniques. Case studies related to major scientific breakthroughs andrecent advances in instrument capabilities are also presented.
The specialist knowledge from understanding how to capture quality scientific images will then be built on byexposure to computational image processing and analysis, utilising freely available software (ImageJ, SPSS).This will enable the development of skills to extract the most relevant and key experimental data analysis fromimages.
