REGISTRATION AND ABSTRACT SUBMISSION FOR THE VIRTUAL WORKSHOP 2021 ARE NOWOPEN!
The Optogenetics Australia Virtual Workshop 2021 will feature Keynote and invited presentations from (inter)national leaders in the field, contributed talks from early career researchers (including a Best Talk Award), as well as virtual training opportunities in optogenetics for all tissues and biological questions.
The workshop will be held virtually between 16-19 February, 2021.

The multidisciplinary program will cover all aspects of optogenetics from the development of molecular tools (e.g. light-activated protein-protein interactions), to light stimulation in cells (e.g. for manipulation of cell signaling) and methods for in vivo optogenetics in a variety of tissues (e.g. new illumination devices).Thursday, February 13
