The annual short course “Principles and Applications of Time-resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopy” is organized by PicoQuant GmbH in cooperation with Joseph R. Lakowicz from the Center of Fluorescence Spectroscopy (CFS) in Baltimore, USA.
It gives an in-depth introduction to the principles of fluorescence spectroscopy and its applications to the Life Sciences. This years course will be held from November 2 to 5, 2015 in Berlin, the capital city of Germany.
The course is aimed at professionals who are using or intend to use fluorescence spectroscopy in their research. In addition to lectures, the course offers practical training on instrumentation and software.
The lectures will be held by Joseph R. Lakowicz from CFS, Zygmunt “Karol” Gryczynski from the Texas Christian University, Forth Worth, USA, Rainer Erdmann, Managing Director of PicoQuant, and further senior scientists of PicoQuant, who all have extensive experience in time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy.
The practical sessions will include steady-state and time-resolved measurements as well as data analysis, performed on various instruments provided by Agilent and PicoQuant.
