Events we will be attending!
Lectures and practicals held at the Université Paris Descartes, 45 Rue des Saints Peres, 75006 Paris, France. Two days of demonstrations are run at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (IBENS), 46 rue d’Ulm, 75005 Paris. World-expert lecturers and instructors come from Paris, France, Europe, the world.
The course offers intensive practical sessions over six days, with dedicated instructors and setups assembled with the latest equipment. Students choose 3 techniques from: patch-clamping in slices, field recordings, calcium imaging, voltage-senstive dyes, photolysis, optical bench and (new in 2018) analogue and digital electronics.
The course fee will be €1,500 Euros per student, with a reduced fee of €1,100 Euros for students who do not require accommodation. Special arrangements exist for attending lectures only and for students from contributing institutions.
The European Light Microscopy Initiative was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment. Its aim is to promote the quickly developing field of light microscopy as a fundamental research tool for the life sciences and to strengthen the channels of communication between researchers and industry. The annual meeting, which has been running for the last 13 years at various venues across Europe, has an excellent reputation within the microscopy community, making this meeting a key event in the calendar of hundreds of scientists and developers.
The strength of this meeting lies in the mixture of scientific lectures on state-of-the-art, high-end microscopy combined with “hands-on” workshops and exhibition of the latest technology, organized by the leading companies in the field. In 2018 we will maintain the format and focus on leading edge developments and its implementation to life science.
The workshop provides intensive practical experience of a number of microelectrode, patch clamp and optical techniques applied to single cells. It is intended for postgraduate students, post-doctoral workers or established scientists wishing to apply these techniques in their research. The following core techniques are offered as 3-day experiments:
• Patch clamp – single channel, whole cell, slice recording
• Single electrode voltage-clamp – fertilization potential in ascidian oocytes
• Two electrode voltage clamp molluscan neurons
• Cell injection and transgenic labelling techniques
• Ion-selective microelectrodes – ion concentration changes in hippocampal slices
• Fluorescent indicators in cardiac and neuronal cells
• Optical imaging and optical components workstation

The Physiological Society, the Scandinavian Physiological Society, the Deutsche Physiologische Gesellschaft and the Federation of European Physiological Societies are delighted to announce an agreement to co-host a series of biennial joint meetings.
