GWNIC Correlative Microscopy Workshop

The George Washington University (GW) Nanofabrication and Imaging Center (GWNIC) presents a four-day hands-on correlative microscopy workshop.



In partnership with equipment vendors Leica Microsystems and ThermoFisher Scientific, the program will include:

  • a showcase of state-of-the-art instrumentation (see full list below);
  • demonstrations of real-world workflow on the vendors’ instruments including live cell imaging on the multiphoton confocal microscope;
  • sample preparation for and imaging on the FIBSEM;
  • data analysis to help you correlate data from different microscopes; and
  • new developments coming to market. 

The workshop will be geared towards electron microscopists who are in the market for new instruments or who are interested in learning new techniques for special projects, particularly neuroscientists or anatomists who are interested in utilizing large area imaging in their research.

Instruments included in workshop workflow demonstrations:

  • Leica TCS SP8 Multiphoton Confocal Microscope-FLIM (Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging)
  • Leica EM ICE High Pressure Freezer
  • Leica EM AFS2 (Freeze Substitution)
  • Leica EM UC7 Ultramicrotome
  • FEI Helios NanoLab 660 Dual Beam Electron Microscope
  • FEI MAPS software
  • FEI AMIRA software
  • ARIVIS Vision 4D software

Additional Details

Tuesday, November 7th through Friday, November 10th, 2017; 9:00 am-5:00 pm each day.

All four days of this workshop will be held on GW’s Foggy Bottom campus immediately prior to the start of Neuroscience 2017, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.

Lunches and coffee breaks will be provided for all participants.

Attendance will be capped at 20 participants.

There is a $130 registration fee to attend this workshop.
