I know william mair spoke of minicourses too
Don’t forget neurotech/BCI minicourses, TEM/AFM minicourses, and analytical chemistry/microfluidics/synthace ones. Many companies offer training to use their own products [NOTE: most aging biologists do not need these, but there is more uniqueness upside risk for some people them]
Michael Nielsen once said we should make the “basic course unit” smaller [which I fully agree with - it gives you more to sample what works really well with you (shittiness in semester-long biology courses is often highly correlated with shittiness in adjacent semester-long biology courses, making some biology majors end up hating biology when they didn’t need to - EXAMPLE HERE jsomers.net | I should have loved biology)]
In this workshop, participants will gain in-depth exposure to the tools and techniques used by the Allen Institute to collect in vivo physiology data at scale.
EMBO workshops, neuroscope workshops
