Bio-Image Summer School Paris 2005


In brief

Summer school on
Manipulation, visualisation and modeling of single molecules

ENS, Paris, France, 11-22 July 2005

The main objective of this summer school is to give scientists, especially young researchers, the opportunity to explore new frontiers in biological imaging at a site where high-level scientists in chemistry, physics and biology actively collaborate. The proposed summer school (New Frontiers in Biological Imagery, BIO-IMAGE) is not intended as a review of available equipment or of current technologies, but rather as an opportunity to provide the scientific community with cutting edge expertise concerning new and emerging technologies. This objective will be reached by bringing together chemists, physicists and biologists who are implicated in the development of hardcore imaging technologies.

General information and overview

We are organizing a summer school dedicated to single molecule micromanipulation, visualisation and modeling in Paris on the Montagne St. Geneviève this summer. This school,  Bio-Image will be held from July 11th to the 22nd 2005. The goal of the school is to provide basic knowledge to PhD students, postdocs and young researchers in the field of single molecule investigations especially in micromanipulation, visualisation and modeling. The program will include organised visits of several laboratories on site.

Paris offers many cultural and culinary attractions and is an excellent centre for exploring the heart of France. Note also that Bastille Day, the French national holiday, will be celebrated on July 14th with renowned firework displays. The main one is held near the Eiffel Tower - which is very pretty.
