The International Conference “Fundamental and applied problems of Bioluminescence and Chemiluminescence” within the frame of the Symposium will be held for the first time in Russia.
The conference is dedicated to the memory of the outstanding scientist, Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, professor Osamu Shimomura. He remains an honorary professor of the Siberian Federal University. Under his supervision, the Laboratory of bioluminescent biotechnologies was established in SibFU in 2011. With his personal donations, the Osamu Shimomura Foundation was created. This foundation annually awards scholarships to young scientists conducting research in the field of bio- and chemiluminescence.
The scientific program of the conference includes both fundamental research in the field of bioluminescence and their practical application in ecology and environmental education.
The best reports of young scientists and poster presentations will be awarded with Osamu Shimomura Foundation prizes.
The conference sections are the following:
- Fundamental problems of bio - and chemiluminesce
- Applied problems of bio - and chemiluminescence
