The First Russian Conference on Optogenetics & Optopharmacology
11/04/2018 - 15/04/2018
A decade ago optogenetics and later optopharmacology opened a new era in neurobiological approaches. Currently, a fantastic range of optobiological tools allows to selectively control neuronal activity. We invite you to participate in the Russian Conference “Optogenetics and Optopharmacology” that will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, on April 11-15, 2018 in Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University and the Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences.
The working languages of the conference are English and Russian.
The conference will feature plenary lectures on the general problems of optogenetics and optopharmacology, as well as oral presentations and posters on the results of research conducted by the Conference participants.
The scientific program of the conference will include discussion of the problems of creating new optogenetics tools, targeted delivery of photosensitive proteins and low-molecular-weight photo switches to target cells, problems of prosthetics of sensory systems, toxicity and stability of optogenetic tools, interpretation of results and other issues.
