The “Cell and Molecular Biophysical techniques course” was organized in collaboration with the Biophysical module of AUGM (Associação Universidades grupo de Montevideo -, UNICAMP and CNPEM. The course was planned in two parts: theoretical (April-June/2023) and practical (to be held in Campinas, SP-Brazil, from 16-19th of October/2023). In Part 1 different techniques were covered such as fluorescence, circular dichroism, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Computational Biology, optical tweezers, Fourier Transform InfraRed, Atomic force microscopy.

Part 2 practical classes will happen at University of Campinas (UNICAMP) and the Brazilian Synchrotron light laboratory (LNLS/CNPEM), as a satellite event of the XLVII SBBf congress. In this “hands-on” course 20 graduate students from Latin America will have the opportunity to run different measurements in the facilities of UNICAMP and CNPEM.
