Attached you will find the program of the previous course in 2017 to give you an impression
Microscopic images contain much more information than normally is retrieved. Especially time-lapse image data contains a wealth of information. Extracting this information by visual inspection and manual measurement is not only cumbersome but also subjective. Automation of image analysis tasks by using a computer and the right software tools allows for higher efficiency, accuracy, objectivity, reproducibility, and completeness.
During this course, the participant will 1) obtain a deeper theoretical understanding of image analysis methods, and 2) obtain practical experience with image analysis software tools (in particular ImageJ) and learn how to use them intelligently, on their own computer.

The course is intended for PhD students and Postdocs who would like to deepen their understanding of image analysis methods and learn how to use them. No prior knowledge of image processing is required. The maximum amount of participants is 30.

Attached you find an old program to give you an impression of the course.

This course is 0,8 ECTS.  

Participants should bring their own (!!!) laptop computer to the course 
for the practical exercises. Software and sample image data will be provided during the course (USB stick). No prior knowledge of image processing is required.

General information
Financial regulation of the Postgraduate School MolMed

From January 1st, 2017 the following financial rules apply, but they may differ per course still. Look at the course fee of each course to be sure which discounts are really applied:

Non-commercial course, symposium or workshop fee: €200/day, €750/week

• Participants of the postgraduate school MolMed: discount of 100%

• However, the Research Management course and the workshops Photoshop/Illustrator/Indesign have to be paid from the ‘personal budget’ of employees, MolMed members and PhD students included. So they will receive an invoice from us which you have to pay and which will be reimbursed by your Department. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice

• PhD students and Master’s students, regardless of institution: discount of 50%.

  • The course fees of research master’s students will be paid by their master program at rate of €100/ECTS. For not I&I master students: please inform your master program in advance whether they agree to pay.
  • Master’s students who are paying the fee from their private budget: discount of 75%. When you  will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your home address details for the invoice.
  • However, 2 courses in statistics are paid centrally by the Dept. of Research policy for all PhD students from Erasmus MC! These are R and the SPSS course. So for Erasmus MC PhD students, these courses are always free, provided you are officially registered as a PhD student.

There is one fee for the entire course. There is no reduction for partial participation.

Some courses have less course days: SPSS 3 days, Survival Analysis 2 days, Management 2 days, Presenting 1,5 days and also other may be shorter as indicated on the website.

Commercial participants, companies & sponsors are invited to inquire about commercial tuition fees and about sponsoring.

All invoices will be sent by email to the mail address that you filled in upon registration. If this address is not correct we use your Erasmus MC address.
