This PALM international and multidisciplinary summer school aims to bring together world-leading physicists and biologists interested in microbial life, international students (masters students, graduate students, post-docs) and young and senior scientists, to provide a comprehensive overview of the current progress, and to stimulate further interactions and collaborations. Microbiology lecturers will introduce the fundamental concepts of microbes and will present the most recent research results in biology while physics lecturers will expose the many facets of the current biophysical understanding of microbial processes.
The school will be held in Gif-sur-Yvette, in the near suburb of Paris, at the edge of the Natural Regional Park of "Vallée de Chevreuse". Lectures, Meals and Housing will be at the centre CGT Frachon in Gif-sur-Yvette.
