Home > Press > Charge Transfer in Biosystems - ESF-LFUI Conference

Abstract:
The Conference aims at bringing together scientists active world-wide in the theoretical and experimental investigation of charge transfer in biomolecules and complex systems that include a biological component (such as protein/surface and DNA/surface interfaces), to assess the state of the art in the field in terms of methods and knowledge.

Charge Transfer in Biosystems - ESF-LFUI Conference

EU | Posted on December 2nd, 2010

We also aim at training young scientists who pursue a multidisciplinary career that bridges physics, chemistry, biology and engineering.

Another expected outcome is the creation of new collaborations that potentially may open new research avenues and lead to expanding knowledge in the near future.

Charge transfer in biological molecules is a crucial issue for its implications in chemical reactions in living organisms and for the potential exploitation in nanotechnology. The measurement and theoretical description of the phenomena have been traditionally developed and carried out by the chemistry community, with typical instruments and tools. In the last couple of decades, with the advent of nanotechnology and the investigation of nucleic acids and proteins in this context, different communities have also come into play, notably physics and engineering. Therefore, new investigation methods have been prepared and applied, in both experiment and theory. The field is now mature to integrate the various approaches towards a consensus that would boost a deeper investigation of charge transfer in bio-systems in solution and interacting with solid materials, to gain new knowledge towards improving diagnostics and therapeutics on one hand and developing the next-generation nanoscale electronic devices on the other hand.

Few events have so far occurred to bring together the various communities that can convoy their expertise to improve the understanding of charge transfer phenomena. Given the latest developments in theoretical methods and experiments, the proposed conference is quite timely and the originality that can emerge from mixing experiences is outstanding.
