This first Summer School was associated with AFMBioMed Summer School Marcoule 2011.
The School offers an introduction to Atomic Force Microscopy in Life Sciences and Medicine for Ph.D student, post-docs or young scientists. Lectures in the morning are complemented by hands-on experiments in the afternoon. There are about 20 places for students doing hands-on experiments. These places will be given preferentially to European students. Participants are encouraged to send a CV and a motivation letter. AFM beginners are welcome.
The school welcomed 26 trainees coming from 12 countries: Belgium, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, UK and 14 instructeurs.
10 travel grants were given by COST Action TD 1002.
