JPK announces that it will host the 1st International Workshop on the applications and uses of optical tweezers in life science research in Berlin on 15th May 2008.
Invited speakers from Europe and the USA will present ground breaking results in three areas: existing and new technology will start the program.
It will be followed with dedicated sessions that investigate single molecules and cellular actions & interactions. The meeting will close with a poster session where delegates are invited to showcase their work to fellow scientists. It is a particularly good forum to see the work of scientists from world-leading groups
Announcing this flagship event, JPK's Director Törsten Jahnke describes the meeting as an excellent way to explore the work in this burgeoning area of science. "As we develop innovative nanotechnology solutions for the life sciences, we are meeting many new groups of scientists with problems of how to apply probe technologies to provide new insight to cell and single molecule behavior. We are now pleased to host a forum for the sharing of such exciting research."
