BMB207: Biophotonics PhD course

The PhD School at the Faculty of Science at the University of Southern Denmark


Advanced microscopy and biophotonics course at DaMBIC, University of Southern Denmark.


Date 18th-22th January 2021.


Bioimaging plays an important role in modern biosciences not only as a tool for research but also as a means to improve medical treatments. The main objective of this course is to provide the theoretical basis of bioimaging together with some “hands on” laboratory practice. The goal of the course is to teach the students general principles of fluorescence and light microscopy as well as to demonstrate principles behind advanced fluorescence and imaging techniques as well as a short introduction to image processing and analysis.


There will be practical demonstrations and hands on exercises on all topics. The course is a five-day intensive course taking place within one week. The course is relevant for PhD students within medicine, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, nano-bioscience, pharmaceutical sciences, agricultural science or biology. The course corresponds to 5 ECTS points.


Learning objectives:
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be familiar with:

  • Widefield microscopy
  • Laser scanning single-photon confocal microscopy
  • Two-photon microscopy
  • Spinning disk confocal microscopy
  • Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS)
  • Raster Image Correlation Spectroscopy (RICS)
  • Fluorescent Lifetime Imaging microscopy
  • Coherent anti Raman scattering microscopy (CARS)
  • Image analysis
