  • General introduction to light microscopy
  • Principles of microscopy and microscope anatomy
  • Cameras for imaging
  • Contrast enhancement (phase contrast and DIC)
  • Understanding fluorescence microscopy
  • Fluorescent dyes and proteins
  • Fundamentals of Microscope Image Analysis
  • Handling of Microscope Image Data
  • Confocal Microscopy
  • Live-cell Imaging
  • Imaging at the molecular level: F-Techniques 
  • Microscope Image Analysis 
  • Light sheet fluorescence microscopy  
  • Super resolution and SIM
  • Nanometer resolution by localisation microscopy
  • STED
  • Bespoke microscope design
  • Summary
