2019 Photosynthesis Gordon Research Conference
Our partner Dr. Yagut Allahverdiyeva-Rinne from University of Turku will be giving a talk at this event: “Redirecting Photosynthetic Electron Flow into Biofuels: Versatile Function of the Flavodiiron Proteins”. She will be representing the SUNRISE community distributing our leaflets among attendees.
Also our colleague from ICIQ Dr. Elisabet Romero gives a presentation: “Electronic Energy Coupling by Design”, as well as the member of our Advisory Board Roberta Croce from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam: “NPQ Without LHCII”. The event will count with other supporters and friends from the SUNRISE community. Have a look at the Conference Programme.
More about the event:
The Photosynthesis GRC represents a unique opportunity to facilitate intense and productive communication between researchers from multiple disciplines, all sharing a common interest in photosynthesis. Given the interdisciplinary nature of photosynthesis research, the invited speakers will represent a diverse array of scientific approaches aimed understanding key aspects of photosynthesis. Graduate students and postdocs will have the opportunity to present their latest research findings and discuss their results with leaders in the field during highly interactive poster sessions schedule throughout the conference. The keynote session will be focused on advanced biophysical approaches for resolving molecular mechanisms of photosynthesis. A special session of the Conference will be devoted to short talks by junior scientists that have been selected for their exciting results given in the poster session. Overall, the diversity of topics and technical approaches will provide an extremely stimulating multidisciplinary environment for junior and senior scientists alike.
