Advanced School on Nano, structural and single molecule approaches to biology: understanding and handling life at higher resolution

Start Date 4th Jan 2016
End Date 15th Jan 2016

The workshop is organized by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics, in cooperation with Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research.

The aim of the school is to introduce young researchers to the latest developments in the field of nano-biophysics/biochemistry and structural biology, and to their revolutionary impact on biology, biotechnology, drug design and delivery as well as early diagnostics of wide spread diseases. The rapid development of nano-sciences and novel nano-materials has in fact made available a new range of tools and approaches that have revolutionized biological and medical research, by allowing scientist to manipulate nano-particles and macromolecular objects, to build supramolecular entities with improved functionalities, to monitor the function of single molecules, and to understand cell behavior at molecular level. 

Topics will include:

  • single molecule approaches
  • optical manipulation
  • scanning probe techniques
  • high resolution optical techniques
  • nanoscale bio-devices
  • novel bio-inspired nanomaterials
  • molecular design
  • structural biology techniques
