Workshop on Single Molecule Spectroscopy

März 26, 2009

For the 15th time now, PicoQuant is hosting the International Workshop on Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Ultrasensitive Analysis in the Life Sciences. The workshop will take place from Sep. 15-18, 2009 in Berlin-Adlershof, WISTA campus, Germany. Topics that will be covered during the talks and a poster session are: Fluorescence Lifetime Correlation Spectroscopy (FLCS), Pulsed Interleaved Excitation (PIE) and Stimulated Emission Depletion Spectroscopy (STED), two-photon excitation, new and robust fluorophores such as quantum dots, metalfluorophore interactions, analysis of living cells, investigation of protein folding and biological function studies of macromolecules and Foerster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET).


Young Investigator Award

Februar 25, 2009

During the „Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Imaging“ conference at the exhibition SPIE Photonics West (Jan. 24-30, 2009) the „Young Investigator Award“ was presented to three students. Due to the large amount of excellent talks, the award sum of $1125 was split equally and was given to Sigrun Henkenjohann (University Bielefeld), Jonas Fölling (MPI Göttingen) and Nathan P. Wells (Los Alamos Nat. Labs). The award was sponsored by PicoQuant and offers the winners also a registration fee waiver for the European Meeting on „Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Ultra Sensitive Analysis in the Life Sciences“, to be held in Sep. 15-18, 2009, in Berlin.
