CeNS-NIM-SFB486 Winter School 2009

Nanosystems and Sensors

March 1st - 7th, 2009

View on village St. Christoph.

This internal Winter School for members of NIM, CeNS and the SFB486 will highlight experiments at the crossroads between Biology, Statistical Physics and Nanofabrication. Topics include the investigation of molecular motors at the single-molecule level, DNA circuits and Darwinian DNA Machines to evaluate models of molecular evolution, advancements in nano-bio-systems requiring the availability of functionalized fluidic biosensors that are capable of high speed and high sensitivity operation and fluorescence spectroscopy techniques. The audience will be composed of graduate students and post-doc researchers of CeNS and NIM, working in the fields of physics, chemistry, biochemistry and life sciences.

Program Committee

The program committee is composed of the following members of CeNS/NIM:

  • Jens Michaelis, Dieter Braun, Philip Tinnefeld, Eva Weig (LMU)
  • Jonathan Finley, Friedrich Simmel (TUM)


Details about registration and the online registration form are now available here.
