Imaging Workshops for Renal Researchers

As part of the educational component of the NIH George M. O'Brien Center award, the Indiana Center for Biological Microscopy provides workshops for investigators. The workshops provide renal investigators with formal training and hands-on experience with intravital microscopy of the kidney.

New Workshop scheduled for April 10th - 14th, 2017

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 participants who, upon approval and with the support of our technicians and faculty, will be able to conduct studies of their own.
