European Biophysics Congress
OMT Graduate Travel Grant Report – Aurélien Barbotin
I have long awaited to attending the congress of the European Biophysical Societies Associations (EBSA). I am currently trying to shift fields, from engineering to biophysics, so it was very important for me to attend this multidisciplinary conference. I had the chance to attend talks given by world-leading scientists, such as Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz or Stefan Hell, and to meet a lot of my peers working in different universities across Europe.
I submitted an abstract about my research, which is the development of adaptive optics, a method that consists in correcting imperfections occuring when light propagates, for a certain class of microscopes used to quantify molecular motion (STED-FCS). My abstract was selected for both a talk and a poster session, during which I could receive useful feedback from my peers and from more experienced scientists.
Finally, I have received a warm welcome from the members of the European biophysics community I had the chance to meet. Hopefully, this will lead to future collaborations.
