When: 12/09/2023 - 15/09/2023
Where: Leuven, Belgium
This summer school aims to teach young researchers to use microscopy-based methods to quantify cellular forces (PhD students or junior post-doctoral researchers).

This summer school organised by KU Leuven aims to teach young researchers to use microscopy-based methods to quantify cellular forces (PhD students or junior post-doctoral researchers).

The summer school is spread over 3.5 days, with one afternoon of practical workshops and one morning with analysis tutorials. There is a limited number of spots available in the workshops.

The programme includes:

  • Theoretical lectures on basics of mechanotransduction, fluorescence microscopy, traction force microscopy, FRET-based force , computational models, mechanical characterization, proporties of biomimetic materials and microfluidics.
  • Practical workshop on measuring traction force microscopy, FRET sensors (intensity and lifetime analysis) and microfluidics (if possible).
  • Tutorial session on data analysis.
  • Poster presentations.

Date: 12-15 September 2023
Location: Erik Duval Auditorium, Celestijnenlaan 200A, Leuven (Belgium)
