Training School on Laser Applications for Biology and Biomolecular Systems: an authentic hands-on experience
3-7 July 2017, Coimbra, Portugal
The Training School on Laser Applications for Biology and Biomolecular Systems is focused on the application of laser-based techniques to biologically relevant molecules and systems. A selected number of significant lectures on the School field of application will be given by renowned invited scientists. Spectroscopic, time-resolved and microscopy techniques will be presented and available for selected hands-on experiments by the targeted users from the Biology, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacy and Medical community. Students with background in Physics or Chemistry with the objective of studying biomolecular systems are also welcomed.

University of Coimbra, founded in 1290, was recently recognized as a world heritage by UNESCO. Over the centuries Roman, Visigoths, Moors and Christians lived in the city of Coimbra. The present-day character of the city is the legacy of the great epochs of the European and Moors culture. Coimbra’s architecture combines Roman (aqueduct and cryptoporticus), Gothic (Santa Clara-a-Velha Monastery), Renaissance (Santa Cruz Monastery) and Baroque (Joanina Library) styles. Walking around the Old Town you can feel surrounded by history from tempestuous time. For many centuries the former Portuguese capital has had thriving intellectual and cultural life – for that it remains to be called Lusitanian Athens. The city would be never the same without its students proudly wearing their traditional clothes, and keeping cultural tradition alive through the ages. Coimbra pampers inhabitants and visitors with living tradition, great weather and delicious vine and food.
