Education

The HBIAMP Facility plays an active role in enhancing the educational experience for trainees at the University of Calgary. We host a regular Educational Seminar series promoting the available equipment and how it can be applied to existing projects, as well as presenting exciting new findings made by researchers using the facility.

A key building block of our strategy is to provide education and training in advanced microscopy, behavioural, and optogenetic approaches. This is comprised of courses and HBI REALISE program training modules that include fundamentals of imaging as well as hands-on training in the implementation and application of these technologies. Several light microscopy courses are currently offered to students which include MDGE 632 (Principles of Light Microscopy), MDGE 633 (Advanced Techniques in Optical Microscopy), and MDGE 634 (Digital Imaging for Optical Microscopy). HBI AMP scientists also participate in the Canadian Light Microscopy Course (CLMC)every two years and, together with Snyder LCI, organize regular Microscopy Interest Group (MIG) seminars.

Our Facility Specialists are always available to provide both individual and group training sessions to all users. In addition, standardized protocols are currently available on-line.
