2017 Workshop

View Tentative Workshop Schedule (attached)

The 2017 workshop will be held April 10th – April 14th in Indianapolis. The objective of this 5-day workshop is to provide training in quantitative intravital microscopy of the kidney to investigators from around the world in the form of a series of morning lectures and afternoon hands-on laboratory exercises. We typically accept up to twenty five  participants who, upon approval and with the support of our technicians and faculty, will be able to conduct studies of their own.

The registration process requires two-steps. We provide a limited number of seats so each application needs to be approved in order to complete the registration. We will be approving applications based on a short (2-3 paragraphs) research description you will be asked to provide during the registration process. Once accepted, you will need to come back to the registration page to complete payment for the workshop registration fee (credit cards and internal IU billing will only be accepted).
