Starting in 2021, the Deisseroth lab will be offering remote (pandemic-compatible) versions of their training workshops via Zoom. Online workshops will be offered on the following techniques: optogenetics, fiber photometry, CLARITY, and STARmap. Details on the workshop format and registration information can be found here.
