2014-01-27 - 2014-01-31

Venice (Italy)


Within the framework of COST Action TD0906, Dr. Massimo Vassalli is organizing a Training School (TS) entitled “Nanomechanics of biomolecular adhesion”. This TS will take place in the historical centre of Venice (IT), from January 27 to 31 2014.

The school will treat theoretical and experimental methods that proved to be useful in identifying force-dependent molecular properties that are central to the biological activity of cell adhesion proteins.

Ten selected participants (trainees) will be entitled reimbursement for their participation (travel, subsistence, and accommodation) according to COST rules. The organizers have arranged a registration package which includes five nights' accommodation and attendance at the lessons for 350 €. Grants for trainees will be 800 € (700 € for Italian participants). The deadline for applications is November 30th  2013. Reimbursed participants will be selected by the Action Core Group.
