Fluorofest Presentation Titles Announced

HORIBA Scientific, global leader in fluorescence instrumentation and other spectroscopy solutions just posted the latest presentation titles for the upcoming FluoroFest symposium to be held at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX.  FluoroFest is open to anyone interested in the field of fluorescence.

The 3-day event starts on Tuesday, May 21st and runs through Thursday, May 23rd, 2019.

FluoroFest is a series of global workshops designed to give both fluorescence researchers and the growing number of fluorescence users a forum to hear internationally renowned experts in the field share their insight on topics of current interest.  Registrants will be able to present and exchange ideas on their work and discuss future directions in the fields of materials science, nanotechnology, analytics/chemometrics, and biomedical research. In addition, they will experience hands on sessions with state-of-the-art technology in fluorescence instrumentation.

Renowned keynote speakers and their presentation titles include:

  • Kirk S. Schanze (University of Texas in San Antonio)

Fluorescent water soluble conjugated polymers: fundamentals and application to biosensing

  • Yves Mely (University of Strasbourg)

Imaging the dynamics and interactions of viral and bacterial proteins by advanced imaging techniques

  • Catherine Royer (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)

Mapping protein networks in vivo using advanced fluorescence microscopy approaches

  • Bruce Weisman (Rice University)

Using near-infrared fluorescence to characterize single-wall carbon nanotubes

  • Tamás Bányász (University of Debrecen)
