ARNOLD RIKLI AWARD 2019

For photobiological investigations in relation to human beings, we hereby announce the awarding of the 20th Arnold Rikli Prize in the amount of 10.000 Euro for the year 2019.

The prize was originally awarded by the Institute F. Wolff of Riehen, Switzerland and first established in 1989. Jörg Wolff, the brother of the former sponsor, continues this tradition. The prize has been announced by the Jörg Wolff foundation every year since 2006 and  stands under the patronage of the European Society for Photobiology (ESP).

The submitted reports should cover investigations on biological effects of optical radiation (ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation). The results should show new aspects for diagnostic investigation and/or therapy or provide guidelines for the practical utilization of biologic basics and/or future research with optical radiation.

Unpublished papers, or papers published after January 1, 2017 must be submitted in English language and be delivered to the office address or submitted electronically to the e-mail address mentioned below not later than January 31, 2020. The submission should focus on one area of speciality. An additional abstract of no more than 300 words should outline the research and the significance of it. In the case that the submission is “in cumulo“ (five studies at most) a brief explanation should be provided uniting the presentations together. It is desirable to enclose a letter of support in English for the award nomination.

An independent jury will evaluate the investigations and nominate the winner. The prize ceremony will take place at the International Symposium “Biologic Effect of Light”, in June 2020 in Homburg/Saar, Germany.

In 2020 the 5th International UV & Skin Cancer Prevention Conference will take place in Mechelen, Belgium (5th – 8th May 2020).
This is the 5th conference under the umbrella of WHO.
This time, the conference will be organized by EUROSKIN (European Society of Skin Cancer Prevention : https://www.euroskin.eu/en/).

Co-organizers are:

- Association of Dermatological Prevention (ADP): www.unserehaut.de
- The Danish Cancer League: https://www.cancer.dk/international/about-the-danish-cancer-society/
- World Health Organization (WHO): https://www.who.int/
- Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS): http://www.bfs.de/EN/home/home_node.html
- Association of European Cancer Leagues (ECL): https://www.europeancancerleagues.org/

On top of the organizers ideas about the possible topics and speaker for this conference we would like to get suggestions from you, by means of an inquiry, for most interesting topics and speaker which/who you would like to see on the conference and workshop s during the conference.

We would, therefore, kindly like to ask you to answer our inquiry

https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/KXWXYXD

(open with Strg + mouse click)

until June 28th, 2019. The inquiry will only take a few minutes of your time.

Many thanks in advance

With kind regards

Rüdiger Greinert

La società Italiana di Fotobiologia
ha contribuito all’istituzione
di una “Research Scholarship” dedicata
al Prof. Giulio Jori uno dei 
pionieri
della Società Italiana di Fotobiologia.  

Lo scopo è quello di promuovere
la carriera di giovani scienziati
in particolare provenienti
da paesi meno privilegiati,
e migliorare le collaborazioni
tra i laboratori di ricerca.

La borsa di studio annuale offre fino a 6000 € per coprire
le spese di viaggio e soggiorno associate alla visita in un
laboratorio di ricerca in un altro paese per un periodo di 3 mesi.

Le informazioni relativa al bando si possono trovare 
nel sito dell’European Photobiology Society (ESP).

Venerdì 7 giugno 2019

Centro congressi S. Elisabetta - Campus Universitario, Parma

Il workshop propone riflessioni su aspetti di frontiera per la biofisica molecolare quali i processi cinetici, spesso eventi ultraveloci, che stanno alla base delle reazioni biochimiche che sostengono la vita, e gli studi morfologici e funzionali ad elevata risoluzione spaziotemporale su cellule viventi. La luce, sorgente di energia e fonte di informazione, svela dettagli che permettono di cogliere i legami tra struttura, dinamica e funzione nei processi biologici.
