Microscopy for everyone, High-performance, low-cost, Easy to source, quick to assemble, Lab-ready customisation here are some few expressions to describe the Open Flexure Microscopy. A revolutionary way of thinking the reliable diagnosis of thousands of Tropical Neglected diseases as well as other Infectious diseases. The open flexure Microscopy is a downstream and direct application of artificial intelligence and machine learning in the Health sector. Being new, there is a great motivation of ventilating this awesome technology over the world. This training workshop was then designed to popularise this biotechnology and render scientists more familiar with its usage and other derivatives.
- Build a microscope
- Use an open flexure microscope
- Develop extension and debug a microscope
This training is specifically designed for highly motivated students, professionals and scientists with proven interest in health sciences, public health and other related fields.
Where will the training be taken?
The training sessions will be held within 03 days at MboaLab, Yaoundé, Cameroon.
This training workshop will take 03 days from 21st to 23rd July 2021.
Partners for the workshop
The workshop will be organised with the working force and experience of few known organisations. Namely, Beneficial Bio, the Biotechnology Centre of the University of Yaoundé I, the African Open Science and Hardway, the Fobang foundation, Ecopark foundation, HIMORE MEDICALS and the INTERNATIONAL FAIR FOR YOUNG AFRICAN RESEARCHERS…
