ABOUT THE SYMPOSIUM
This symposium is a fantastic opportunity to know how scientists from fields like molecular biology, biochemistry, and structural biology are incorporating “physical and computational” methods in their research. Some prominent methods include optical microscopy, cryo-electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, optical tweezers, computer simulations, and bioinformatics. We aim to promote such tools to the new generation of life scientists, exploring their benefits and contributions to biological and medical research.
The program is organized into three sessions:
Advanced microscopy tools for single protein observation;
Biophysics tools for biological systems;
Bioinformatics and computational tools.
Every session will consist of invited talks from one local and one high-profile international senior scientist. The speakers represent various stages in the academic career, from established group leaders, like Peter Hinterdorfer, to young principal investigators, such as Laura Carroll, who could inspire and give suggestions to doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows pursuing a career in academia.
The symposium will also include short talks, poster presentations (with PRIZES!), and a round table open discussion with the speakers. With these, doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows will have the opportunity to share their research, learn about new methods, and establish new interdisciplinary collaborations.
