„Imaging neuroinflammation“

NERKA

Regional Biophysical School “Academician Radoslav K. Andjus” (NERKA) was established in honor of Professor R.K. Andjus (1926-2003) an internationally recognized scientists from the University of Belgrade, a member of Montenegrin and Serbian academies of sciences and arts and one of the founders of Institute for Marine Biology in Kotor. This is the sixth school, organized traditionally by the Biophysical Society of Serbia this time with the sponsorship of the International Union for Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) with over 50 members. We are expecting a good turnout of participants from Serbia, Montenegro and the Region.

Welcome to Biophysics at the Mediterranean!

Prof. Pavle Andjus, president of Serbian Biophysical Society

Description

Each school has a different theme, and thematic objective of this school is to introduce modern methods of biophysical imaging and image analysis in studies of inflammatory phenomena and markers of neurodegenerative diseases. It is also envisaged to rise discussion among the participants on the translational value of these techniques and the clinical relevance of presented experimental markers.

The techniques covered will be:

  • MRI, MRS, PET, EPRI, and
  • advanced microscopy
    • non-linear microscopydual photon fluorescence,
    • fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) & microscopy,
    • super-resolution microscopy : PALM, STED,
    • raman spectroscopy : CARS,
    • digital holographic microscopy.

A multidisciplinary faculty is chosen ranging from fields of:

  • physics (applications of laser technology and advanced microscopy),
  • physical chemistry (magnetic resonance techniques and applications),
  • biology (experimental models of neurodegenerative diseases), and
  • medicine (clinical studies and markers of neuroinflammation).
