Advanced Optical Spectroscopic Methods for Biophysics and Biology

Applications now open...

Forschungszentrum Juelich is pleased to announce the 5th Advanced Practical Course in Advanced Optical Spectroscopic Methods for Biophysics and Biology, within the framework of the International Helmholtz Research School on Biophysics and Soft Matter.

The course will be held at the Forschungszentrum Juelich from 8th - 12th October, 2007.

Deadlines for applications close 31st August, 2007.

The Research School addresses graduate students, post-docs, and young researchers in the fields of molecular cells biology, biophysics, physical chemistry, and optical spectroscopy. The participants are encouraged to bring their own case studies for discussion with the tutors.

Lecture Topics will include:
- Confocal fluorescence spectroscopy;
- Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy and Forster resonance energy transfer;
- Fluorescence lifetime imaging;
- Selected applications of single-molecule spectroscopy to biology;
- Reaction-induced FT-IR difference spectroscopy.

Around 10 -12 participants will be accepted on a competitive level. Further information about the course can be found at: http://www.fz-juelich.de/inb/inb-1/Spectroscopy_Course

All applicants should send their CV and a short resume (one page) about their current scientific activities including a statement about how their research activities should benefit from attendance at this course.

Fees: Course fees are €100. Course fees will cover course material and social events.
