Invitation to the conference „3rd Baltic Biophysics Conference“
We would like to invite you to 3rd Baltic Biophysics conference, which will be held on October 6-7, 2022, in the Center for Physical Sciences and Technology, Vilnius, Lithuania.
The main purpose of this conference is to meet with scientists from the Baltic states, which work in biophysics or related fields. The main topics of the conference will be:
- Biomedical physics & engineering,
- Nanomedicine & Theranostics,
- Advanced microscopy & Bio-imaging,
- Novel Nanomaterials in the life sciences,
- Electric fields effects on the biological systems,
- Lab on a Chip.
About our keynotes:
Rodolphe Fischmeister graduated from Supélec (France), then studied at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada) and Emory University (Atlanta, USA). He returned to INSERM (France), where he currently is its Director of Research as well as the head of the LabEx LERMIT, and deputy director and founder of the Laboratory of Signalling and Cardiovascular Pathophysiology. Professor’s interests are directed toward physiological and pathophysiological aspects of neuroendocrine regulation of heart function, cardiac membrane receptors, and their signaling cascades, and cellular control of cardiac ion channels.
Rodolphe Fischmeister’s prolific research has accumulated over 10’000 citations (with 26 papers cited >100 times), and his h-index is 59. Professor has trained dozens of post-graduate researchers was invited to several hundred scientific meetings and seminars all over the world, and has received a number of awards for his influential contributions.
Herbert van Amerongen studied at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and was a postdoctoral researcher at Arizona State University. Currently, he is a Professor of Biophysics at Wageningen University (the Netherlands). Herbert van Amerongen is famous for his research on the light reactions of photosynthesis employing spectroscopic and microscopic methods.
Professor’s research has been highly impactful – his h-index is over 60 and his publications have been cited over 10’000 times. Especially well-known monograph Photosynthetic Excitons (World Scientific Co., Singapore, 2000), written together with Leonas Valkūnas and Rienk van Grondelle, has been cited over 1000 times.
