The Physiological Society sponsors a range of techniques workshops to enable physiologists to develop their practical laboratory skills, whilst also gaining a theoretical understanding. The workshops are primarily aimed at postgraduates and recently qualified postdoctoral workers.
Members of The Society are encouraged to apply for travel grant funding to support their attendance at these workshops.
The Society is supporting the following workshops in 2013:
Introduction to Molecular Biology Techniques, 11-14 June 2013
Birkbeck, University of London, UK
An introduction to molecular biology, designed for scientists with limited knowledge. Training will include techniques in cloning, transfection and functional studies.
This workshop is organised by Dr Caroline Pellet-Many (University College London).
Measurement of Gene Expression using Real-Time Quantitative PCR, 19-20 June
King's College London, UK
This two-day workshop will provide attendees with the skills required to measure mRNA levels in a sample.
This two-day workshop is organised by Dr David Sugden (King’s College London) and Dr Patricia de Winter (University College London).
Live-Cell Imaging, 11-13 June 2013 (date TBC)
University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
This three-day workshop provides theoretical and practical guidance on imaging live cells and tissues using widefield, confocal and multi-photon microscopy. The final day focuses on image analysis software.
This workshop is organised by Dr Paul Thomas (University of East Anglia).
Microelectrode Techniques for Cell Physiology , 4-18 September 2013
The Marine Biological Association, Plymouth, UK
This residential workshop offers techniques including: two-electrode voltage clamp; patch clamp (single channel, whole cell, slice recording); single electrode voltage clamp; dye injection; ion-selective microelectrodes and fluorescent indicators.
This workshop is organised by The Marine Biological Association.
CGR Advanced Course in Genome-wide Gene Expression Profiling by Array and NextGen Sequencing
21-24 January, 2013. University of Liverpool, UK.
This workshop is designed to provide an introduction to the conceptual, practical and interpretational issues involved in large-scale gene expression profiling.
This workshop is organised by Professor Andrew Cossins (University of Liverpool) and Dr Marta Milo (University of Sheffield).
If you have any ideas for workshops that we should run in future, or have feedback on recent workshops, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
