CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Croucher Summer Course: Advanced Imaging -

Extended Deadline: May 22, 2015


The 1st Croucher Summer Course on Advanced Imaging - From System Biology to Single Cell & Single Molecule Analysis will be co-organised by HKU-Pasteur Research Pole, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, The University of Hong Kong Faculty Core Facility


August 2-8, 2015


Hong Kong Jockey Club Building for Interdisciplinary Research

5 Sasson Road, Pokfulam, Hong Kong


The ability to assess and interrogate biological processes at the level of the single cell and the single molecule is revealing a new complexity in which phenotypic cell-to-cell variability emerges as a result of highly deterministic processes. In single cell and single molecule approaches, imaging offers the unique advantage of observing these biological circuits function over time in intact cells, as well as the exciting possibility of quantitatively understanding the deterministic processes contributing to phenotypic cellular variability. Objectives

In thiscourse, the aim is to bring together scientific leaders in the integration of imaging tools with conventional and next generation “omic” tools that enable the analysis of biological circuits at the single molecule and single cell level.

Participants’ profile:

This course will be aimed at advanced postgraduate students (MPhil and PhD) and post-docs who have already started or are planning to use new and emerging techniques around single cell & single molecule analysis in their ongoing research projects.
