Imaging Latin America is a workshop initiative aimed at developing the microscopy knowledge and expertise of Latin American life scientists.
Organized by the Advanced Bioimaging Unit at the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo in
partnership with the Advanced Imaging Center at HHMI – Janelia Research Campus, Imaging Latin America is an intensive, 6-day workshop focused on exposing students to a plethora of microscopy technologies and impactful applications.
Topics range from microscopy fundamentals and brightfield imaging to multi-color, 3D, live-cell fluorescence microscopy. Furthermore, students will be challenged with hypothesis-driven projects that apply the techniques taught in the course. These theoretical and practical classes will run in parallel with an in-depth quantitative image processing and analysis course, which will provide the students with the skills necessary to reveal meaningful information from
microscopy data. Beyond microscopy, image processing, and quantitative analysis, students will further learn the importance of imaging ethics and proper reporting to ensure reproducibility.
With the generous support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute – Janelia Research Campus, the Imaging Latin America workshop is free of financial burden to all attending students. The expenses associated with air travel, accommodation, and food will be covered by Imaging Latin America.
The workshop will be hosted at the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo, Uruguay from the 17th to the 22nd of September 2022. Imaging Latin America will be preceded by the Global Bioimaging Exchange of Experiences on the 15th and 16th of September 2022.
Applications for Imaging Latin America are due by the 15th of May 2022.
