Congratulations to our PhD Student Carlos Redondo-Gomez, who has won the Award for Best poster presentation during the Sao Paulo School of Advanced Science on Biophysical Methods to study Biomolecular Interactions, in Sao Paulo, Brazil, October 16th – 27th. Carlos presented his research on “Stabilising Peptide Amphiphile-based biomaterials using Host-Guest complexations”.
The Advanced School provides young researchers (PhD and postdocs) with the state of the art of theoretical and experimental tools to study Biomolecular Interactions. In this context, classes focus on protein-protein, protein-membrane, protein-lipid, membranes and proteins and their partners as well as protein-DNA interactions. The school gives students the opportunity to attend multi-disciplinary classes and to interact with renowned researchers on Structural and Spectroscopic techniques, such as Fluorescence, CD and SRCD, EPR, NMR, SAXS, Cryo-TEM, AFM and molecular dynamic simulations. Furthermore, the School also offers plenary lectures with the aim to make a synergistic liaison between different techniques applied to biologically relevant topics.
In this way, the students meet prominent biophysicists in the field and other young scientists in an attractive and convivial environment, thus propitiating excellent conditions for networking.
