Abstract:
JPK Instruments are happy to announce that registration is now open for the tenth annual international symposium on the applications of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) and optical tweezers. The symposia will be held on the 5-6th October 2011 in Berlin focusing on applications developments in life sciences. These meetings continue to be highly regarded on the international life sciences meetings calendar. More than 100 scientists from around the world are expected to come to Berlin to discuss their results and share scientific knowledge in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

JPK announces the 10th annual International Meeting on the application of SPM & Optical Tweezers for Life Sciences

Berlin, Germany | Posted on August 16th, 2011

This year's speakers come from Europe and China and will present new research results on a wide variety of topics. These will range from single molecule force spectroscopy to torsional tapping AFM. A new method for cancer detection by probing the elastic properties of cells is one of the many applications. In the optical tweezers part of the program, contributions include the study of mucin self-interactions and how the cell-cell adhesion of enthrocytes may be studied using both optical tweezers and AFM. The meeting will also feature poster sessions where delegates are invited to showcase their work to their peers helping to make it a most interactive scientific meeting. These traditionally attract a high standard of work offering students the opportunity to present posters alongside leading researchers.

Announcing this year's meeting, Torsten Jähnke, Chief Technical Officer of JPK, said "the speaker list is top notch again. It is rewarding after the hard work putting together the event to have such a good list of top people as speakers. I am looking forward to the popular poster competitions and see the latest research activities of our delegates."
