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.

New and innovative applications of Photodynamic Inactivation of microoorganisms in
Photochemical & Photobiological Sciences

Call for Papers

The antimicrobial effect of Photodynamic Inactivation (PDI) is based on the light-induced and photosensitizer-mediated overproduction of reactive oxygen species in harmful or unwanted target cells. This approach aroused special attention since it allows for killing of a wide spectrum of microorganisms irrespective of their resistance to conventional treatment with antibiotics. Up to date, medical applications of PDI for management of clinical conditions from 'head to feet' are on their way to approval by health agencies.

During the IUPB executive board interim meeting held on July 12th, the members of the Executive Board selected the 2019 IUPB awardees as follows:
The Finsen medalists:
Henry Lim, USA, for his contributions in Photomedicine (Photodermatology)
Janet Bornman, Australia, for her contributions in Environmental Photobiology
Silvia Braslavsky, Germany, for her contributions in Sensory Photobiology
Edna Roe Lecturer:
Lesley Rhodes, UK, for her contributions in Photomedicine (Photodermatology)
Finsen Lecturer:
Scott Byrne, Australia, for his contributions in Photomedicine (Photoimmunology)
The awards will be presented and each of the awardees will deliver a lecture at the IUPB-ESP World Congress on Light and Life (Joint 17th International Congress on Photobiology & 18th Congress of the European Society for Photobiology)) to be held in Barcelona, Spain, on August 25-30, 2019.

September 19th to 22nd, 2018 Kochel am See, near Munich, Germany


Invitation letter from the Conference Chairs to join the “Photodynamic Therapy and Photodiagnosis Update” conference which will take place from September 19th to 22nd 2018 at Kochel am See, an hour drive south of Munich, Germany:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

following the tradition initiated in 1996 by Giulio Jori and Herwig Kostron, the 2nd post Brixen (Italy) Symposium PDT & PD Update 2018 will bring together students, researchers and clinicians working in all fields of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photodiagnosis (PD) to foster the scientific developments in this field thus contributing to widespread use. While presenting interdisciplinary lectures and posters the Brixen-Spirit could be tasted and experienced during your intercultural discussions bringing young and elder attendees together, new friendships and relations can be founded.

Located in Southern Bavaria, Kochel am See offers impressive scenic views as well as interesting activities for relaxation. After hard work during the conference days, it depends on you to attend the first weekend of the Munich-October-Fest (22.09.-07.10.2018) while still being accommodated in Kochel am See.
