Time Resolved Methods in Biophysics

XX School Of Pure And Applied Biophysics

January 9th - 13th, 2017

Organised by:
SIBPA - Società Italiana di Biofisica Pura e Applicata
IVSLA - Istituto Veneto di Scienze Lettere ed Arti

Director of the School
Giorgio M. Giacometti (IVSLA and University of Padua)

Scientific Coordinators of the 2016 School:
Giorgio M. Giacometti (IVSLA and University of Padua)
Cristiano Viappiani (Università degli studi di Parma)
Thomas Gensch (Forschungzentrum Jülich, Germany)

Meeting venue
The School will be held in the magnificent Palazzo Franchetti, located in the historical centre of Venice.
Palazzo Cavalli Franchetti is the conference center of the "Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere ed Arti" (IVSLA) Venetian Institute for Sciences, Humanities and Arts.

The focus of the 2017 School is Time Resolved Methods in Biophysics
The possibility of accessing structural, topological or spectroscopic information with the proper time resolution is at the basis of a variety of methods that are currently applied in biophysics. These methods allow unprecedented understanding of many biologically relevant processes such as mechanistics of biochemical reactions, energy transfer and fixation, protein folding, macromolecular conformational changes and cellular trafficking, to name just a few.  This school proposes an overview on a selection of current spectroscopic, structural and microscopy methods that are inherently endowed with time resolution.


Maximum 50 students will be admitted to the school. 
Applications are encouraged from young scientists (PhD students and postdocs) interested in the topics of the school.

The participation fee is 350 Euro which includes five nights' accommodation and attendance at the lessons.The fee for students who do not need accommodation is 165 Euros.
Deadline for registration 
December 1, 2016.

Applicants are admitted to the school by the Scientific Committee based on the information provided on the application form (short curriculum). The results of the selection will be individually communicated by e-mail by December 5, 2016. Payment must be performed by December 15. Instructions for payment will be given in the acceptance letter.
