A decade ago optogenetics and later optopharmacology opened a new era in neurobiological approaches. Currently, a fantastic range of optobiological tools allows to selectively control neuronal activity. We invite you to participate in the Russian Conference “Optogenetics and Optopharmacology” that will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, on April 11-15, 2018 in the Sechenov Institute of Evolutionary Physiology and Biochemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences.
The conference will feature plenary lectures on the general problems of optogenetics and optopharmacology, as well as oral presentations and posters on the results of research conducted by the Conference participants.
The scientific program of the conference will include discussion of the problems of creating new optogenetics tools, targeted delivery of photosensitive proteins and low-molecular-weight photo switches to target cells, problems of prosthetics of sensory systems, toxicity and stability of optogenetic tools, interpretation of results and other issues.
Simultaneously with the Conference, the School on Optogenetics and Optopharmacology will be held, where it is planned to read a series of lectures for young researchers on the current state of optobiological methods, to discuss at round tables and special sessions the research issues at the present level, the participation of young scientists in the ongoing work. Leading specialists from Russian scientific institutions and from abroad – P.D. Bregestovski (KSMU, Russia, INSERM, France), A.V. Kuznetsov, and others will be invited to give lectures and hold roundtables. A.V. Semyanov (UNN, Russia), L. Looger, A. Karpova (HHMI, USA), P.M. Balaban (IHNA&NPh, Russia), M.A. Ostrovsky (Moscow State University, Russia), N.N. Dygalo (NSU, Russia), K.V. Anokhin (Moscow State University, Russia).
