Hands-on training course
Advanced comet assay training course
Saturday 21st May - Sunday 22nd May, 2022
Preceding the joint ICAW and EEMGS meeting there will be the opportunity to take part in a hands-on training session with novel applications of the comet assay. You will get the opportunity to work with 3D skin models (provided by Henkel - Phenion) and HepG2 liver spheroids (training by National Institute of Biology, Slovenia) on the first day of the training. On Sunday you can try out the 12 gel/slide system and the CometChip (Trevigen/Bio-Techne).
Application for the Hands-on training course
Since there are only 25 spaces available for this training course, registrations will involve an application and selection process. In order to apply you have to be eligible and provide the following:

- Send us a motivation letter explaining why you want to take part in the training.
- Send us a short (2pg) CV.
- Students will have to include a supporting letter from their PhD supervisor.
Please sent your application to email@example.com by April 1st.

The scientific committee will make a selection of the applications and notify you all by half of April.
Those selected will also receive an invoice to arrange payment for the hands-on training.
