High-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy for analysis of biomolecular processes"



About the Conference

The International Conference and School on "High-Resolution Ultrasonic Spectroscopy for analysis of biomolecular processes" (HRUS 2018) will take place on October 5th – 8th 2018 at Brno University of Technology in the Czech Republic. The Conference will provide a venue for discussions of applications of High-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy in the analysis of biomolecular processes, including (but not limited to) enzyme catalyzed reactions, hydration and conformational transitions in biopolymers, biomolecular self-assembly and stability of bio-colloids, both in academic research as well as in industry. It will seek to advance the development and applications of High-Resolution Ultrasonic Spectroscopy by bringing the experts and practitioners from different research fields and industrial sectors together. 

The oral presentations and poster sessions will be accompanied by practical courses in the application of high-resolution ultrasonic spectrometers in analysis of bioprocesses aimed towards PhD students, early-stage and experienced researchers working in the areas of bioanalysis, biophysics, analytical chemistry, food and pharmaceutical technology, and other related disciplines.

The social aspect of the conference will include excursions, participation in ‘Night of the Scientist’ and other events.

HRUS 2018 is organized in the framework of the project FORMILK funded by the European Commission under the program H2020-MCSA-RISE-2015- FORMILK.


About the School

The School will be held for 2 days and will offer hands-on experience on handling of High-Resolution Ultrasonic Spectrometers and associated analytical techniques in monitoring of biomolecular processes. The School is addressed to postgraduate students and researches working in analytical science - related fields in academia and industry.
