Career development and soft skills for young scientists (2 Edition)
February 20-21, 2018, Instituto de Medicina Molecular - João Lobo Antunes, Lisbon, Portugal.
This workshop will focus on the following subjects: career development and scientific integrity. There is an increased awareness of the need of training of scientists to be excellent researchers as well as inspiring leaders. For this, the scientific training has to be complemented with soft skills training, which are useful both in academic and industrial environments and widens the horizons beyond the academic world, conducting and applying the results of science by ensuring objectivity, clarity, and reproducibility.

Workshop on High-Resolution Light Microscopy
Cancer Cell migration in Space and Time
17-22 October 2016, Lisbon
The workshop will cover recent advances in fluorescence microscopy, enabling measurement and computational analysis of a wide range of cellular activities. It consists of both lectures and hands-on sessions, giving the necessary theoretical background and practical insight into the application fluorescence microscopy to study cell migration and cellular processes at high spatial and temporal resolution. The main topics that will be covered are: principles of microscopy; fluorescent probes; live imaging; FRAP, FRET and photo-activation; image processing and analysis.
The first day (17 Oct) is an open day conference with lectures and the following days (18-22 Oct) will be hands-on sessions which, due to limited places available, are available only to researchers from ReTuBi labs.
This imaging workshop is aimed at Master and PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and senior faculty members either with or without previous working experience in using light microscopy.
17 Oct | Conference day
The registration is free of charge and will be on a first come, first served basis.
