This summer school offers an introduction to Atomic Force Microscopy in Life Sciences and Medicine for Ph.D students, post-docs, scientists, core facility technicians and engineers.
Main topics addressed
- AFM imaging
- Multiparametric imaging
- AFM-based force spectroscopy
- AFM calibration
- State-of-the-art AFM development
- Image processing and force curve analysis
The school allows students to acquire and deepen their AFM knowledge but also to be initiated to new state-of-the-art developments both at the theoretical, instrumental and application levels. The school covers both the fundamentals and expert questions and offers the possibility for students to bring their samples. This summer school allows, thanks to the AFMBioMed network, to make contacts and establish scientific collaborations between all participants and supervisors.

General Eligibility Criteria for CIVIS Courses
Applicants need to be enrolled at their home university in order to be eligible for selection and participation. If uncertain about your status at your home university (part-time or exchange students etc) please check with your home university’s website or International Office.
Applicants who will be receiving other Erasmus funds for the duration of the course are not entitled to funding. Participation in the course may still be possible under “zero-grant” status, but applicants should contact their home university in order to confirm this.
A list of links and contacts for each university can be found in this Q&A.
