Micron Advanced Microscopy Course

We hold an annual advanced microscopy course for Wellcome Trust postgraduate students (and other interested research staff).

This years Lecture course will be held in 14th-18th November 2016.


Micron wiki

We have a Micron wiki, which is constantly evolving and being updated with useful information. Internal users can register and edit the wiki (external users will soon be be able to view a snapshot of the most useful information).


Q. Who can use the Micron facilities, and what are the charges?

Access is straighforward for researchers belonging to Biochemistry or Pathology, and relatively easy to arrange for those in other Oxford departments. External users are welcome to enquire about working collaboratively. Charges are usually around £30 per. hour for internal users.
