PicoQuant’s Workshop on Single Molecule Spectroscopy brougth together top researchers

More than 150 participants came to Berlin to discuss latest results, projects and ideas

The sixteenth International Workshop on Single Molecule Spectroscopy and Ultra Sensitive Analysis in the Life Sciences from September 15 to 17, 2010, organised by PicoQuant GmbH, brought together international top researchers in the field of ultrasensitive optical detection and single molecule spectroscopy and microscopy. More than 150 participants enjoyed 45 highly up-to-date talks, including lectures given by renowned scientists like Steven A. Soper, Paul R. Selvin and Gerhard J. Schütz. During the poster session with more than 50 scientific posters participants discussed latest results. Informal gatherings during the reception and a dinner lead to fruitful discussions about new ideas, projects and new networks.
