Minicourses & Workshops
Training & Educational Opportunities for Researchers
For a listing of upcoming workshops and minicourses, check the center events calendar.
Interdisciplinary research often requires new
skills - beyond the previous experience of researchers working on such
projects. Staff can provide researcher training opportunities on
topics relevant to the PS-OC research community. All members of the research community are welcome to attend, including those from the CMM, other PS-OC's, other academic institutions, and industry.
Workshops consist of a 1-3 hour seminar discussion of a topic relevant to PS-OC users. The purpose of these workshops is to quickly give researchers from a variety of disciplines a sense of the breadth of a topic of interest. Subjects covered in previous workshops include Mammalian Cell Culture, Fluorescence Imaging, IR spectroscopy, and multiplexing analysis. To request a schedule of upcoming workshops or to suggest topics to be covered, contact Teresa Porri (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Minicourses are intensive, hands-on classes that allow researchers to develop practical lab skills in new fields over several days. Instruction takes place in groups of 6 of fewer, to ensure individual attention.
Minicourse topics include:
- Mammalian Cell Culture
- Chemical Surface Modification
- Fluorescent Cell Staining
- Surface Analytical Methods
- Microfluidic systems - design, fabrication & testing
- Soft Lithography
These minicourses take place periodically during the year based on user demand. To request more information contact Teresa Porri (email@example.com)
Below are some sample slides from previous minicourses.
