Education & Training

CTIF experts provide required training to new users, to ensure that instrument capabilities are optimized as well as to protect the instruments. Prior to satisfactory demonstration of technical competence, all instrumentation use is supervised or performed by CTIF experts. Contact the CTIF Director to schedule a training session.

In addition, two formal, 3-credit graduate-level courses are offered annually by the Department of Cell Biology and Physiology: "Multiparametric Microscopic Imaging" and "Imaging Cell Biology in Living Systems." Learn more.
