The LSC InfectoOptics and its partners offer excellent career perspectives for junior scientists at the interface of life science and optics and photonics. The members of the LSC are involved in numerous Master courses at FSU and EAH which offer scientific and application-oriented education. The excellence graduate school JSMC offers optimal conditions for exciting and challenging doctoral research projects in the LSC InfectoOptics, accompanied by an extensive programme of transferable skills courses.

Interdisciplinary Lectures

Image-based Systems Biology (FMI-BI0053)

Event number: 140803
Responsible: Prof. Dr. Marc Thilo Figge
Place & Time: WS 2020/2021, presumably online

Content: The interdisciplinary lecture "Image-based Systems Biology" provides, on the one hand, a basic introduction into modern techniques of microscopy and, on the other hand, an overview of methods of quantitative image analysis and application
in the modeling of biological systems. The aim is to obtain a basic understanding of microscopy as well as the ability to analyze microscopic image data and to formulate mathematical models based on the quantitative data. A script will be provided in English for the lecture. In addition, the lecture will focus on current literature.
Bachelor and Master students can take part in the lecture.

Systems Biology of Immunology

Event number: 71799
Responsible: Prof. Dr. Marc Thilo Figge
Place & Time: SoSe 2020, online

This interdisciplinary lecture is divided into two parts. The first part consists of several lectures starting with a summary of important aspects of systems biology in general and continuing with a profound introduction to the immune system. In the second part, various mathematical modeling approaches are discussed in some detail and applied to selected topics of immunology. Participants do not have to be an expert in mathematical modeling and do not have to be an expert in the immune system. The idea is that, whatever is needed from immunology and from mathematics, this will be presented in the lecture. Interested students will have a background in biology, bioinformatics, physics, or related disciplines and are generally interested in the immune system
and in the mathematical modeling of this complex system.

Biotechnology/Bioprocess Engineering (BBC3.A13, MCB W 7, MCEU3.1.6)

Event number: 90685
Responsible: Prof. Dr. Miriam Agler-Rosenbaum
Place & Time: WS 2020/2021, presumably online

Content: The first part deals with the theoretical basics of biochemical engineering. The second part of the lecture focuses on the production of recombinant products using high-throughput processes.
In a third part system biotechnology will be introduced.

Spectroscopy and Imaging II (MC 3.1.6, MCB W 23)

Event number: 88534
Responsible: Prof. Dr. Dr. Jürgen Popp
Place & Time: WS 2020/2021, presumably online

Content: The lecture provides an in-depth introduction to a variety of possible absorption and emission phenomena: IR-Absorption, UV-VIS-Absorption, basic terms of fluorescence spectroscopy and fluorescence microscopy as well as an in-depth introduction to linear and nonlinear Raman effects.
