David Bensimon, Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris
Ludovic Jullien , Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris
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. Twenty-four invited speakers, leaders in their field, will participate.
The workshop will be preceded by a 3 day school on Optical Methods in Physiology open 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.
