2 Day Workshops in Dallas/Fort Worth on May 21 and May 22, dedicated to Fluorescence Techniques.
HORIBA Scientific (HORIBA), the global leader in fluorescence spectroscopy systems, is presenting FluoroFest, a series of free workshops dedicated to Fluorescence techniques. FluoroFest 2013 will be held in Fort Worth, Texas, at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, and co-hosted by The Center for Commercialization of Fluorescence Technologies (CCFT). It is open to anyone interested in the exciting field of fluorescence.
FluoroFest is a global series of 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 deep insight on topics of current interest; present and exchange ideas on your own work and discuss future directions in the fields of biomedical research, nanotechnology, and materials science; and experience the state-of-the-art in fluorescence instrumentation with hands-on sessions.
The 2-day event takes place in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area. Opening remarks begin on May 21st, and the workshops run through May 22nd. Some of our speakers and their topics include:
- Dr. Zygmunt (Karol) Gryczynski, Ph.D., Plenary Speaker, “Fluorescence Technologies. Probe Development and Studying Molecular Interactions.”;
