Hosted by Prof. Klaus Qvortrup
Klaus Qvortrup (KQ), Professor, Director CFIM, MD, PhD, Dip RMS. He has 30 years of experience with light- and electron microscopy, established and is director of CFIM at the Faculty of Health, University of Copenhagen. CFIM features state-of-the art electron and confocal microscopes dedicated for life sciences research. Klaus Qvortrup has published over 100 publications in international peer reviewed journals.
With his strong background in EM, Paul Verkade set up a new EM unit as part of the Wolfson Bioimaging Facility, a fully integrated light and electron microscopy centre. Besides heading the EM unit he also has his own research group. His current research focus is to develop techniques and tools for the use of Correlative Light Electron Microscopy (CLEM) studying endocytic sorting.
For the hands-on sessions registration is required as there is a limited number of slots. We provide carousel sessions (groups will circulate), so everybody will do all 3 sessions:
A] Delphi, fully integrated CLEM; hands-on with test sample; guided by Delmic/Phenom-World
B] High Pressure Freezing sample preparation protocol; guided by Leica Microsystems
C] Sample prep and imaging at cryoSEM and cryoTEM; hands-on with test sample; guided by CFIM
