9th AFMBioMed Summer School in GRENOBLE 2017 (August 21st-25th)
The School offers an introduction to Atomic Force Microscopy in Life Sciences and Medicine for Ph.D student, post-docs, scientists, core facility technicians and engineers. Lectures in the morning are complemented by hands-on experiments in the afternoon. There are about 20 places for students doing hands-on experiments. Participants are encouraged to send a CV and a motivation letter to the organizers. AFM beginners are welcome.
