AFMBioMed Conferences

In 2006, Pierre Parot and Jean-Luc Pellequer created AFMBioMed, a scientific organization for international conferences on the use of atomic force microscopy in nanomedicine and life sciences. The genesis and development of AFMBioMed are described in the editorial of the 15 years of its existence.

Past conferences :

  • 2007 : 1st AFMBioMed international conference was organized at the CosmoCaixca Science Museum in Barcelona (local chair : Daniel Navajas, Univ. Barcelona). Special issue of the Journal of Molecular Recognition.
  • 2008 : 2nd AFMBioMed international conference was organized at the Hyatt Regency Monterey, California (local chair : Sanjay Kumar, UC Berkeley). Special issue of the Journal of Molecular Recognition.

AFMBioMed Summer Schools

It was in 2008 that P. Parot and J.L. Pellequer created a cycle of AFMBioMed international summer schools. Many schools have been organized in our laboratory and others in collaboration with our European programs (COST TD1002 or ITN Phys2BioMed). Currently, summer schools alternate between Grenoble (J.L. Pellequer) and Marseille (F. Rico), although we are open to any suggestions.

  • 2011 : Marcoule (Parot/Pellequer, CEA, in association with COST Action TD1002)
  • 2012 : Krakow (Lekka, Polish Academy of Sciences, in association with COST Action TD1002)
  • 2013 : Marcoule (Odorico/Parot/Pellequer, CEA, in association with COST Action TD1002)
  • 2014 : Lille (Janel/Lafont, Inst. Pasteur Lille, in association with COST Action TD1002)
