Target Audience: Early career investigators
With this training school are are trying to reach especially early career investigators, typically PhD students, Post-docs, faculty staff or research scientists who are already well into image acquisition and have started handling and analyzing those images, and who have a critical critical need for analysing bioimages in order to pursue their research goals. Although no specific level in Image Analysis knowledge is required, the adequacy of the research project to the course content will be a major selection criterion. Read more here.
Target Audience: Facility Staff
This course is designed for staff scientists, graduate students, Post-docs and Faculty, who work in the context of bioimaging facilities and provide assistance to users in need of image data analysis. We expect some experience in handling image data, and some level of familiarity with imageJ/FIJI or equivalent IA software; this course is not appropriate for complete beginners. Very basic programming knowledge is a plus, but not a requirement. Applicants are required to write a letter of motivation, fill a form to assess their level of proficiency and interests, and include a mini-project with goals for the course. Read more here.
