The Sao Paulo School of Advanced Science on Biophysical Methods to study Biomolecular Interactions

The Sao Paulo School of Advanced Science on Biophysical Methods to study Biomolecular Interactions, will be held in the Institute of Physics, University of Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo, Brazil) from October 16th to October 27th 2017.

The School is totally supported by FAPESP. The main goal of the Advanced School is to provide young researchers (PhD and postdocs) with the state of the art of theoretical and experimental tools to study Biomolecular Interactions. The students will meet prominent biophysicists in the field and other young scientists in an attractive and convivial environment.

For details and scientific program: www.fap.if.usp.br/~espcabio Very important: a significant number of travel grants (75) are available for eligible participants from other countries and Brazilian states other than Sao Paulo. We can afford air-tickets and living expenses for the selected students !! So, this is a great opportunity to the students to come to Sao Paulo, to learn with renowned scientists and experience our facilities.

There will be hands-on in several experimental techniques! Submission of applications/abstracts is open until June 18th 2017.
