Advanced Imaging Core Technology Unit provides training to researchers and students on equipment use and, advanced training on methods like FLIM, FRAP, FRET , TIRF and also on image analysis and 3D visualization. We also offer courses in the areas of basic microscopy and advanced techniques (spectral imaging, FLIM, multi-photon and STED).
