*ESP PHOTOBIOLOGY SCHOOL - Call for Application***

18-23 June, 2012
"Casa della Gioventù Universitaria" of the University of Padova
Via Rio Bianco 12
I-39042 Brixen/Bressanone, Italy

The European Society for Photobiology (ESP) is pleased to announce the 
2012 ESP Photobiology School, taking place in Brixen/Bressanone in South 
Tyrol, Italy. The purpose of the school is to provide an introductory 
overview of all main aspects of photobiology, presented by experts in 
each area.  The intention of the school is to cover the basic principles 
of photobiology and photochemistry of biomolecules as well as 
applications of such knowledge in understanding effects of climatic 
changes, influence of light on biological systems, applications of light 
in medicine and for other purposes. The school will include basic 
lectures in each field that should be attended by all participants as 
well as optional special lectures in the same fields. The students will 
have the opportunity to present their results at a poster session. The 
course may act as a fundament for further research in the 
photobiological sciences. The attendants may be MSc- and PhD-students as 
well as others who would be interested in an overview of the 
photobiological sciences.  However, the course will be designed for PhD 
students. The course will end with a short final test and an attendance 
certificate will be provided.

The school will cover the following areas:
Photophysics and photochemistry; Biophotonics - Light dosimetry in 
biological tissues; UV (from DNA damage to human skin); Photoimmunology;
UV and Vit.D and UVA signalling; Photomedicine; PDT and fluorescence 
diagnosis; Photosynthesis; Environmental photobiology; Photosensory biology
