The XXIII International School of Pure and Applied Biophysics will focus on
Emerging Tools in Biomechanics: from tissues down to single molecules
and will be held at the magnificent Venetian Institute of Sciences Letters and Arts (IVSLA),
4-8 February 2019, Venice, Italy
Coordinators: Silvia Caponi, Mauro Dalla Serra, Massimo Vassalli

Mechanical properties have a key role in biological processes. At the interface between biology, physics, and mechanics the school will survey recent advances and the emerging techniques able to probe mechanical properties of biological material. Combining lectures, application talks and hands-on training, the school will introduce the topic at different length scales, from molecular and sub-cellular approaches (Atomic Force Microscopy, Acoustic Force Spectroscopy), to single cells (Brillouin microspectroscopy, MEMS) also extending towards multicellular organization and tissues (nanoindentation, ultrasonic micro-elastography).
Of note, in addition to theoretical lectures, world leading companies will provide access to unique state of the art instrumentation to perform practical activities during the school.
An amazing blend of top level lecturers ready for lessons, seminars and student interactions in the unique scenario offered by Venice in Winter.
