Fluorescent Nanoparticles and Molecules for Nanomedicine

Course description

The course focuses on the fundamental principles of science of fluorescent nanoparticles  and  molecules and their application  (both existing and under development) in biomedicine. It is designed for master and doctoral students and junior researches both from the FBME CTU and from other universities and academic institutions (CR and abroad). Certain time-slots will be available for doctoral students who wish to present their own results in this field. There is some financial support available for foreign students who will present their results (local expenses only, inquire at the organizers).
The Fluorescent  Nanoparticles and Molecules for Nanomedicine  course  is organized with  the  support from the MEYS ESF Project CZ.1.07/2.3.00/20.0092BIO-OPT-XUV (BOX). Two credit points will be given to FBME students who attended at least 80% of classes and passed the final test. All participants will be awarded the attendance certificate.

Directions

There is a frequent bus connection between Prague and Kladno. The Prague bus station is located at Evropská street, opposite to the Diplomat Hotel Prague, about 200 m from the exit of metro station Dejvická. Make sure you board the "direct" bus, unless you want to spent about one hour exploring neighboring villages. The journey should take about 35 min. Leave the bus on the next station after you pass this (the building of Faculty of Biomedical Engineering) on the left.
