Recommended for PhD students in Nanosciences, indicated for PhD students in Neurosciences, Methods and Models for Molecular Sciences, Physics.
Seminar series with usually self-consistent talks given by internal and invited experts, and by internal PhD students, aimed to cover the most novel topics in biophysical sciences, with particular focus on phenomena at the nanoscale. Possible topics are: advanced techniques on fluorescence and optical microscopy in-vitro and in-vivo, electron spectroscopy and microscopy of biological samples, development of novel nano-bio-sensors, simulation and dynamics of biomolecules, nano-engineered materials for cell cultures and lab-on-chip, interactions of living cells and organisms with nanomaterials, mass spectroscopy and imaging, biocrystallography, biophysical and imaging techniques in neurosciences
Educational goals: complete overview on the most challenging research activities in biophysics, with particular reference to the lines currently investigated at the NEST laboratory (eg: imaging, fluorescence, nanomedicine). Training in critical reading and discussion of scientific articles is also hoped for.
