Life meets Light - Second Scientific Conference of the Leibniz ScienceCampus InfectoOptics

Location: Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology - Hans Knöll Institute (HKI)

An infection is a dynamic and complex process, which varies greatly depending on the respective microorganism. Infection research therefore needs the appropriate technologies to elucidate the kinetics of an infectious process, to identify and characterise the players and their interactions as well as to develop means and devices for fast and precise diagnosis. Scientists from many different fields need to combine their expertises to develop such technologies.

Life meets Light aims to bring scientists from the different fields together in order to establish the essential connections between biologists, physicists and biotechnologists.

Researchers from all fields are invited to communicate their results at the interface between optics/photonics and infection biology in order to exchange novel scientific methods and to share recent achievements from optical research in infection biology.

You are cordially invited to submit your abstract for a poster, a talk or a "Tandem-Talk". More information and a preliminary programme will be available soon.
In 2018, the Life meets Light conference will be followed by the International Symposium Image-based Systems Biology, which will take place at the same location on September 6-7, 2018 You are cordially invited to this event as well and more information can be found here.

Life meets Light is a series of annual conferences of the Leibniz ScienceCampus InfectoOptics, which started in 2017.  It takes place at the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology in Jena, Germany. Information on previous conferences can be found here.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Jena on this occasion!
