Spectroscopy of Biomolecules, Inferfaces and Materials II

The unifying theme of this symposium is the application of state-of-the-art spectroscopy methods to challenging problems in the dynamics and structure of Biomolecules, Interfaces, and (Nano-)Materials. There will be two plenary and six invited lectures, with a number of contributed talks to ensure broad participation of graduate student and postdoctoral researchers from the Mid-Atlantic region.
