Open Fluorescence Workshop Highlights Materials Science/Nanotechnology, Analytical/Chemometrics, And Bio- And Medical Research

HORIBA Scientific, global leader in fluorescence instrumentation and other spectroscopy solutions just posted the latest presentation titles from world renowned experts in the field of fluorescence, for the upcoming FluoroFest symposium being held at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, TX.

The 3-day event starts on Tuesday, May 21st and runs through Thursday, May 23rd, 2019. FluoroFest is open to anyone interested in the field of fluorescence.

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.
