Annual Course on Biomedical Research Techniques (XVIIth edition)

Introduction
PhD students (and others) often experience that not all expertise for biomedical techniques or assays they need to perform for their research project is readily available in their department. The organization of the Postgraduate school offers the wonderful opportunity to exchange this expertise. Therefore, the course ‘Biomedical Research Techniques’ is organized to create an overview of techniques routinely used in the various departments. This course is issued the 15th time after the big success of the previous ones. This course is also part of the Research MSc Infection & Immunity.

The program is organized according to a logical order in 5 steps: DNA, RNA, Proteome, Cell, Tissue and Organ.

This implies the following program in 5 days:

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; (afternoon) site visit core facilities labs genomics;

Day 4: (morning) site visits proteomics labs; (afternoon) Flow cytometry, ELISA & Cytotoxicity 

Day 5: (morning) microscopy: quantitative confocal microscopy, image analysis, FRET, FRAP & computer modeling; (afternoon) Applied Molecular Imaging: MRI, CT, Nuclear, Optical in vivo 

Site visits: planned on Wednesday morning & afternoon and Thursday morning. Please register during the course. There are limited places available (max. 10/group).

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

Attendance fees

The subscription fee of non-commercial participants for the Course is €650. This is also the fee when the participants pay the fee from his/her ‘personal budget’.

Ø  PhD students have 50% discount and pay €325.

Ø  For other Research master students we calculate €100/ECTS so €150.

Ø  Research master students who pay it themselves have 75% discount and pay €162,50. When you will pay from your personal budget you need to provide us your personal address details for a correct invoice.

If these financial requirements pose a problem but you wish to attend the Course, please contact Frank van Vliet, managing director of the Erasmus Postgraduate School Mol Med, at: f.vanvliet@erasmusmc.nl.

 PAYMENT: MGC Notification

The Erasmus/LUMC Research School MGC has made a selection of courses it deems fit for its members. This course is not one of them.

Therefore, the Erasmus/LUMC Research School MGC will not pay for its members to participate in this course. All MGC-members will need to pay themselves (or from personal budget) after receiving an invoice (please provide personal address) or will have their research departments pay for them (in that case, please provide ‘kostenplaatsnummer’ of the research group). To see if you are an MGC-member, here you can find an overview of all MGC research groups: http://www.medgencentre.nl/

 


 

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.

Those who register for a course, symposium or workshop agree with these financial conditions.
