The multidisciplinary program will cover all aspects of optogenetics including the development of molecular tools (e.g. light-activated enyzmes), 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).
All dates and times are Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST, Melbourne).Tuesday, 16 February 2021
