Photons & bugs

A workshop on photodynamic treatment of microorganisms

The COVID19 pandemic has highlighted the need for innovative and effective treatments that can be rapidly deployed in the fight against emerging pathogens. The workshop proposes some methodological and technical advances on the use of the photodynamic effect as a tool to tackle microbial infections. For young researchers it is possible to propose short oral communications of 10 minutes. Among proposals received, 2 contributions will be selected and presented during the workshop.
