Venue: Servicio de Bioimagenes y Microscopía, Fundación Instituto Leloir

  Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales, Universidad de Buenos Aires

Train-the-Trainer event overview

Latin America Light Microscopy (LatLM) Train-the-Trainer is jointly organized by Latin America Bioimaging, Canada BioImaging, BioImaging North America, and Global Bioimaging.

This course is designed in the format of “train-the-trainer” and is aimed at imaging scientists who plan to run courses on fundamental topics in light microscopy for their own imaging communities.

It is not a microscopy course but a course to train imaging scientists how to run their courses and user training. The course will be taught in a way to provide participants with suggested content for each topic, annotated lecture slides, hands-on laboratory activities, trainer guides and information for course organization and logistics. Topics will be presented as modules and the course faculty and participants will have dynamic discussions including ways to add to and share module content and continuously improve what can be offered.

Participants will be encouraged to prepare and present a poster describing their imaging platform or a microscopy related project during the course.

This course is limited to 24 places and will take place in-person only.


  • Transmitted light microscopy techniques
  • Fluorescence microscopy
  • Multidimensional imaging
  • Quantitative imaging
  • Making Figures for Publication
