Advances in Single-Molecule Research for Biology & Nanoscience
The Linz Winter Workshop will focus on biological single-molecule research and nanoscience, and include force and optical microscopy/spectroscopy techniques. This year, special sessions on nano-medicine and high-speed atomic force microscopy will be organized. It is the aim to provide a common platform for industry and academia.
We will also arrange a skiing day in the Austrian Alps on Friday, January 31, and a Winter School for young scientists and new-comers from January 28 until January 30.
Registration deadline: December 29, 2019
