Transregio SFB-TR 84 “Innate Immunity of the Lung: Mechanisms of Pathogen Attack and Host Defence in Pneumonia“


International Conference - Postgrad Workshop, 14 September 2016


„High-End Light Microscopy and Digital Image Analysis”


In the context of the 2nd International Conference on Innate Immunity of the Lung –
Improving Pneumonia Outcome, we cordially invite interested postgraduated participants to attend our 2nd workshop on biomedical applications of high-end light microscopy in collaboration with Zeiss. The workshop will provide insight into state-of-the-art light microscopic techniques such as Lightsheet, Superresolution, Spectral Confocal, and Life Cell-Microscopy as well as Digital Image Analysis.

The attendance is only valid for the conference participants. The workshop is free of additional fees. The number of participants is limited to ca. 50 for the forenoon presentation session and to 16 for the afternoon live demo session. The live demo is split into 4 groups á 4 people each having a 30 min demonstration on every system. Afterwards an advanced session of digital image analysis will follow. Q&A during the entire day are welcome.

Please register via the conference registration! Participants will receive a detailed map after registration is finished.


Place: Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Campus Mitte, Internal Medicine/Infectious Diseases and Pulmonary Medicine, Charitéplatz 1, 10117 Berlin, Virchowweg 9
