Educating and training biomedical researchers in biophotonics and advanced light microscopy methods

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Biological research is complex these days because of technological challenges associated with biophotonics and advanced light microscopic methods. Core labs with appropriate advanced optical technological tools along with proper education and training can be an integral part and play a vital role in achieving complex biomedical research objectives. Advanced light microscopy tools can meet all specific needs but are so complex to learn with regard to obtaining optimal imaging datasets. Therefore, a solid educational and training program are essential. Based on researcher's specific needs, there can be two major types of training and education, a general training for all the researchers and a specific individualized training for researchers who want to explore complex experiments.
