AIM is sponsored by Becker-Hickl, Boston Electronics, and Zeiss Microscopy.




4D Advanced Microscopy of Brain Circuits Course


A collaborative effort between the CRL-Molecular Imaging Center, the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, UC Berkeley faculty and graduate students, and Zeiss Microscopy, the inaugural 4D Advanced Microscopy in Brain Circuits course, held from January 10-15, 2016, was a huge success! Sixteen students from around the country participated in lectures and hands-on labs where they had access to state-of-the-art instruments. 

4DAMBC is currently on hold.
