PREMIUM online workshop - October 5th

Workshop on Vibrational spectroscopy and biomimetic membranes for understanding protective mechanisms of oligosaccharides

A better understanding of the mechanisms of microorganisms' preservation by oligosaccharides is one of the main objectives of the PREMIUM project (H2020, MSCA 777657).

In the frame of this project, ICFO is organising a workshop in collaboration with the other seven partners of the consortium (INRAE, AgroParisTech, University of Coimbra, University of Madeira, CONICET, Biosearch Life and Cytiva).

The objective is to share knowledge on two approaches developed in PREMIUM:

  • Vibrational spectroscopy (FTIR and Raman) to study the modification of the cell components induced by oligosaccharides added as protective agents before preservation processes (freezing and drying)
  • Biomimetic membranes and molecular dynamics simulations to focus on the cell membrane structure and organisation and the interactions with such protective molecules

This workshop is an opportunity for sharing PREMIUM results and connecting with scientists working on these topics.

This workshop is open to participants outside PREMIUM, if you wish to receive a connection link, please contact Fernanda Fonseca or Elodie Babu
