MARIE CURIE CHAIR AND ESF SUMMER SCHOOL 2009, 29 September - 4 October 2009, Rhodes, Greece
The Marie Curie and ESF Summer School 2009 on “ULTRAFAST DYNAMICS AND STRUCTURE. TOWARDS BIOLOGICAL AND BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS” aims at bringing together leading experts in the field of laser spectroscopy with graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, and to provide a pleasant learning atmosphere. This school will offer a broad view of the techniques and theoretical background used to follow molecular dynamics and structure namely ultrafast X-ray diffraction and spectroscopy, ultrafast IR and visible spectroscopies, Raman spectroscopy and imaging as well as the methods of generation and measurements of ultrafast pulses. The subjects addressed will cover electronic and vibrational energy transfer, hydrogen bond dynamics and solvent dynamics in general in biologically important systems as well as some biomedical applications in a single human cell and tissue and In addition to lectures, there will be young scientists presentations (20 min, including discussion) and two poster discussion sessions.
