Training and teaching programs

Imaging Africa workshops

Imaging Africa is continent-wide, all-expense covered microscopy workshop, held annually and in collaboration with the Advanced Imaging Center at HHMI Janelia.

Microscopy Matters webinar series

Microscopy Matters is a series of brief webinar lectures focusing on succinct but important topics of microscopy, aiming to contextualize imaging-related material specifically for research topics central to the African scientific community. These mini-lectures will further supplement the various in-person microscopy workshops under the AMI programs.

Partners in Teaching (PiTCH) Program

The PiTCH Fellowship Program aims to pair early career imaging scientists from Africa who seek workshop organisation and teaching experience with an aspiring lecturer or research counterpart from other continents. Upon selection, these pairs will be mentored by experienced international imaging scientists to develop and host a week-long microscopy training course at the affiliated African institute.
