This course features a dedicated Correlative Light and Electron Microscopy (CLEM) Techniques Module. If you wish to work on a CLEM project, please be sure to select the EM Course track in the application.
This course is intended for anyone interested in using imaging in their neuroscience research, including graduate students, postdoctoral or clinical researchers and young investigators in the beginning of independent research careers.
The application window for the 2020 Neuroimaging Course opens later this summer. Check back for more details.
When you click on the “APPLY” button, you will be redirected to an online application form. You must complete all of the information on this form before you submit, as you will not be able to re-enter the form.
