Molecular Technologies for Detection of Chemical and Biological Agents
NATO SPS ASI April 9th to the 15th, 2016, Italy

Leading experts in the fields of modern molecular analyses and in the biological effects of chemical and biological warfare agents will discuss detection and effect of exposure of various agents such as toxins, bacteria, viruses, and chemical agents; description and protocols of new innovative molecular detection technologies ; assessment of the effects of exposure on short term and long term health; procedures for safe removal/decontamination of these agents and monitoring of these processes. Additionally, this meeting will discuss fundamental aspects and applications of molecular technologies, especially mass spectrometry, for the detection of chemical and biological agents and for assessment of their effects on human cells.

Gordon F. Kirkbright Bursary Award 2016

The Gordon F. Kirkbright bursary award is a prestigious annual award that enables a promising student/non-tenured young scientist of any nation to attend a recognised scientific meeting or visit a place of learning.

The fund for this bursary was established in 1985 as a memorial to Professor Gordon Kirkbright in recognition of his contributions to analytical spectroscopy and to science in general. Although the fund is administered by the Association of British Spectroscopists (ABS) Trust, the award is not restricted to spectroscopists.

Applications are invited for the 2015 Gordon Kirkbright Bursary.

The closing date for entries is 31 December 2015.
