General information

Interested in learning hands-on about the latest microscopy techniques? In the middle of the Swabian Alb together with scientific talks from distinguished guest speakers? Right on the pulse of the latest microscopy developments?

All this is offered at our “Trends in Microscopy”, the biennial conference of GerBI-GMB, alias GerBI-GMB Spring School! With hands-on workshops and scientific lectures by renowned guest speakers, TiM is an intensive microscopy training camp. The programme will also cover the fundamentals of optics as well as practical sessions on image analysis.

Participants will stay at the conference venue, a beautifully renovated former military base in the unspoilt landscape of the Swabian Alb Biosphere Reserve. TiM2025 is particularly aimed at PhD students, postdocs and members of core facilities.

GerBI-GMB invites scientific and educational workshops for TiM2025. Commercial workshops are out of scope of TiM2025. The topic of the workshop can be anything microscopy-related that you can envision, e.g. image data analysis, fundamentals of optics, FRET imaging, clearing techniques, expansion microscopy, image data management… We’ll have a cell culture available during TiM2025, and we’ll organize the microscopes needed for the workshops in close collaboration with you.
