JPK announces the next NanoBioVIEWS International Meeting
(Nanowerk News) JPK announces the seventh annual symposium on the applications of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) in areas such as biophysical, biochemical and medical research. It will be held on the 8-9th October 2008 in Berlin. The forum has become an established “must attend” event for the SPM life science community. Last year, more than 100 scientists from around the world came to Berlin to discuss their results and share scientific knowledge. Now, for 2008, the meeting has been extended to a two-day program to meet the increased demand of the audience.
Speakers have been invited from Europe, Japan and the USA to present ground-breaking results showing the rapid advances in applied SPM technology. Once again, the meeting will feature a poster session where delegates are invited to showcase their work to their peers. With nearly half the delegates presenting data last year, this is surely one of the most interactive scientific meetings on the calendar.
Announcing this year’s meeting, Torsten Jähnke of JPK said he is very excited with the response of attendees asking for a longer meeting to give more time to present their research, “This year’s speakers are world-renowned in the SPM world and we are extremely pleased to be able to host this event once more.”
