Imaging Latin America

An All-expenses-paid Microscopy and Image Analysis Workshop
for Latin American Researchers

Location: Institut Pasteur de Montevideo, Uruguay

Course Dates: September 17-22, 2022

Application Deadline: May 15, 2022

This 6-day workshop is offered the Advanced Bioimaging Unit at the Institut Pasteur de Montevideo in partnership with the Advanced Imaging Center at HHMI - Janelia Research Campus. 


With an emphasis on hypothesis-driven experimental design tailored for the regional research interests, students will learn how to properly devise and execute microscopy experiments to quantitively test complex biological questions.

The expenses of Imaging Latin America are entirely covered for all attendees.


Extensive hands-on microscopy practicals across a variety of imaging platforms

This workshop will cover the following:

  • Microscopy

    • Introduction to optics​

    • Brightfield microscopy

    • Widefield fluorescence microscopy

    • Confocal fluorescence microscopy

    • Enhanced resolution microscopy (Airyscan)

    • Two photon microscopy

    • Survey of emerging advanced technologies

  • Image Processing​

    • Fundamentals of digital images​

    • Basic principles of image processing

    • Fourier transformations

    • Object segmentation

    • Machine learning

  • Quantitative Analysis​​

    • Colocalization​

    • Ratiometric image analysis

    • Intensity and morphometric measurements

    • Motion tracking and modeling


Image processing and analysis training for quantitative fluorescence microscopy

Students will not only learn the tools and skills necessary to perform a suite of quantitative analyses, but also the importance of imaging ethics and proper reporting to ensure reproducibility.
