Annual Course on Biomedical Research Techniques (XIVth edition)

PhD students (and others) often experience that not all expertise for biomedical techniques or assays they need to perform at their research project is readily available in their department. The Postgraduate school offers with this course the wonderful opportunity to exchange this expertise. This course is organized by and for PhD-students.

This course is also part of the Research MSc Infection & Immunity.

The program is set up in six half day sessions and is based on: DNA, RNA, Proteome, Cell, Tissue and organ.

The topics for the half day sessions of each day are:
Day 1: primers and probes, sequencing, SNP-analysis, methylation
Day 2: RNA, RNA expression arrays, RT PCR, siRNA, data mining
Day 3: proteomes, mass spectrometry; Site visit core facilities labs;
Day 4: (morning) Flow cytometry, ELISA & Cytotoxicity; (afternoon) Microscopy, Quantitative confocal microscopy, 4 Pi microscope, FRET, FRAP & computer modeling
Day 5: Applied Molecular Imaging: MRI, CT, Nuclear, Optical in vivo; Site visits proteomics labs

Site visits: planned on Wednesday morning and Friday afternoons. Please register during the course. There are limited places available (15/group).

Full presentation at this course is rewarded with 1,5 ECTS.
