The Porto AFM Workshop 2017 has been announced. This is our fifth course!


The course will run from the 10th to 13th April. This is a training workshop, aimed at any researcher or scientist, who wants to learn about AFM, or increase their knowledge of the technique. Following the successful courses that have run since 2011, the course will includes several hours hands-on training in acquiring images with the atomic force microscope as well as AFM data processing.



  • This year, we are pleased to welcome back Filomena Carvalho from IMM, Lisbon, who will talk about Force Spectroscopy: Biological and Biomedical Applications.


  • We also will have  a lecture from Prof. Bart Hoogenboom, from University College London. Bart was the winner of the Royal microscopical Society's SPM Medal for 2017 for his outstanding contributions to AFM. Bart will give a talk entitled: "Drilling holes: Visualising pore forming proteins in action".


  • All places on the course are now filled.
