SINGLE CELL PHYSIOLOGY

This EMBO-FPGG-ICAM workshop will be held at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS*) in Paris between the 23th and 28th of July 2012. It will gather about one hundred and twenty physicists, chemists and biologists interested in the perturbation and study of physiological problems (development, cancer, neurophysiology, etc.) at the level of a single cell. Twenty-three invited speakers, leaders in their field, will participate.



The purpose of this conference is to gather experts from various fields (physiology, chemistry, physics, molecular biology) to address issues in the study of physiology at the single cell level and sketch the possible solutions to the challenges raised by these types of investigations.


The workshop will be preceded by a 3 days Advanced School on Optical Methods in Physiology opened to students and young researchers who would like to get a preview and update of the themes to be discussed during the conference with 4 courses (3-4 hours each) on: Optogenetics, Optical methods in developmental biology, Photo-actuation: substrates and methods, Sub-micron optical microscopy. The school will take place between the 20th and 22th of July 2012 at the ENS*.
