Courses


SciLifeLab offer training and workshops for current and potential SciLifeLab infrastructure users, such as PhD students, postdocs, investigators and other employees within all Swedish universities.

The educational activities cover knowledge and understanding about the advanced techniques and data analysis methods available at the SciLifeLab technical platforms. In general, they are aimed for researches who have not previously been aware of – or lacked access to – the technologies SciLifeLab provides. You can learn how to benefit from SciLifeLab’s scientific resources, how to plan your projects and how to analyze your data. The workshops are usually shorter than other educational activities and more focused on a single subject. Please note that The SciLifeLab The Svedberg Seminar series is also a research course for graduate students.

Advanced Molecular Technology and Instrumentation for Proteome Analyses

The course will provide insight into state-of-the-art technologies for proteome analyses in research and medicine via advanced molecular technologies, reagent resources and instrumentation. The course will convey, by lectures and hands-on training, information about established and emerging methods and technologies relevant in basic research and diagnostics. Affinity- and non-affinity-based methods for protein analyses will be covered. Application deadline: June 15.

2018-08-27 - 2018-08-31, Course | Uppsala, Stockholm

Biophysical methods in drug discovery

The course will focus on different biophysical methods used for characterising protein-ligand interactions in drug discovery projects. It will cover a range of biophysical methods used to characterize interactions between drug target proteins and potential inhibitory compounds, and how to use the information for lead generation. The methods include, but are not limited to those offered at the three SciLifeLab facilities. The course consists of lectures with active discussion from the participants, computer exercises, and demonstrations in the form of laboratory experiments. Application deadline: May 26.

2018-09-10 - 2018-09-13, Course | Stockholm

Hands on immunofluorescence

The purpose of the course is to get experience from preparing samples for immunofluorescence and learn about fluorescence microscopy and how to acquire images from confocal microscopes. The course will combine theory and hands on work by performing a typical immunofluorescence workflow.
Participants will start in the cell lab with cell culturing and seeding, perform immunostaining with three markers and a target protein of choice (if applicable), and image the samples using a confocal microscope. At the microscope the concept of fluorescence will be demonstrated and some exercises will be done to illustrate how confocal microscopy and fluorescence microscopy works. The course will also cover annotation of immunofluorescence images and students will get practice on annotating images acquired. Application deadline: July 6
