Basic proteomics
June 30 - July 04, 2014
Max-Lebsche-Platz 30, Munich Großhadern

Organized by: Prof. Dr. Stefan Lichtenthaler

Description of Contents:
The course “Basic Proteomics” includes a basic introduction into proteomics with a focus on mass spectrometry based techniques. This involves the following topics: Application of proteomics (including analysis of secretomes, whole organs, tissues, cells), Sample preparation, Mass spectrometry based techniques, Data acquisition, analysis and interpretation.
The morning sessions provide the theoretical bases. The afternoon sessions consist of hands-on laboratory training covering the topics from the theoretical training.

Learning Objectives:
The course provides a basic overview and training of mass spectrometry based proteomics. The students will understand opportunities but also limitations of the presented methods. A basic understanding of MS based proteomics will help the students to collaborate with proteomics groups. Moreover, the course enables the participants to carry out sample preparations by themselves prior to mass spectrometry.

Exam:
Each student will present a scientific paper related to mass spectrometry based proteomics followed by discussions. The papers are chosen by the instructors.

SyNergy softskill course “Adobe Illustrator”
February 24-25, 2014
at the Institute of Neuronal Cell Biology, TUM

Organized by: Tatjana Kleele (TUM), Thomas Misgeld (TUM, SyNergy)

This intense workshop for PhD students will enable participants to use the high end graphics design software, Adobe Illustrator, for the fast and efficient production of publication-quality illustrations (Trainer: Andreas Binder).

Advanced Techniques in Light Microscopy
December 02-06, 2013
at the Institut für Neurowissenschaften: Friedrich-Schiedel Lehrstuhl für Neurowissenschaften und Lehrstuhl für Biomolekulare Sensoren, TUM

Organized by: Prof. Helmuth Adelsberger (TUM), Prof. Thomas Misgeld (TUM , SyNergy)

This course focuses on slightly advanced (but not esoteric) techniques of optical microscopy in life sciences - mainly confocal/ two-photon imaging and in vivo applications. For the very basics, the "Basic Microscopy" course that we occasionally offer is more recommended.
We will introduce the concepts and technology behind confocal and two-photon microscopy with a focus on in vivo applications. We will talk about fluorescence, lasers, scanners and detector systems. We will discuss how in vivo imaging is done in different species and what should be considered. Calcium imaging will be discussed in some depth, as this is one of the most widely used modalities of functional in vivo imaging. In the outlook section, we will discuss more "fancy" techniques that are emerging to cover large volumes or transcend the resolution limit. As we are neuroscientists there will be a certain bias to imaging the brain; however, we will try to keep the course general enough so that also non-neuroscientists can benefit.

List the techniques that will be taught in this course:
- fluorescence microscopy
- confocal laser-scanning microscopy
- two-photon microscopy
- calcium imaging
