National course open for participants from all research departments and universities, with no specific focus on research topic.
Application deadline: January 20
Responsible teachers: Cheng Choo Lee (email@example.com)
The course provides basic introduction to EM methods, including lectures, laboratory demonstrations and electron microscopy operation demonstrations. The TEM session will explain the preparation of EM grids, negative stain of proteins, plastic embedding of samples and sample sectioning by ultra-microtome. The SEM session covers both biological and materials science samples. We will not have time to work on participants’ project samples during the course, but you are welcome to use the facility after undertaking a proper EM training.
We can host a maximum of 15 participants. If the number of applicants is exceeded, a selection will be made based on your current academic position and motivation to use the EM techniques.
