Over the recent years, intensive research on the chemistry of probes, biomedical optics and innovative instrumentation have brought tremendous progress in cell imaging and microscopy. These advances open new strategies for the understanding of biological functions and pathologies at the molecular scale, with a major impact on drug discovery, therapeutic innovation and biotechnology. After its successful first edition held in 2015, the international symposium PhysChemCell 2017 will gather an interdisciplinary community (biologists, clinicians, chemists, physicists) within the Paris Saclay area and beyond, working on advanced analytical cell and tissue imaging, from the single cell to the living organism.
The objective of the conference is to favour interdisciplinary exchanges in the frame of a conference of international audience, to promote the translation of disruptive technologies appearing in chemistry and physics into new tools for the exploration of cell physiopathology, and ultimately into clinical or biotechnological applications.
The scope of the conference is unique at the national and even international level, by relying on basic research in chemistry and physics, while strongly targeting applicative fields. Latest advances in cell imaging, such as bio-orthogonal chemistry, super-resolution, correlative microscopies or functional in vivo imaging will be discussed.
The conference will last over 2 days and a half, with about 20 available slots for oral communications and several poster sessions. Along the thematic sessions introduced by prominent international speakers, here are some of the topics that will be discussed :
– Bio-orthogonal chemistry, new probes and labelling strategies
– Biosensors of cell signaling, applications to cell physiopathology
– Analytical, multimodal, theranostic nanoprobes
– Nanoscopies : from structures to quantification and chemical analysis
– New contrasts and label-free imaging, applications to histology
– Pre-clinical and in vivo imaging : photoacoustic, non-linear imaging…
