Summer school

The conference will be preceded by the summer school on Plasma Medicine.

Among the very diverse biological applications of cold atmospheric plasmas, plasma therapeutics is now entering in a new phase with more and more case studies and clinical trials associated with many in vitro and in vivo studies. In this context, good interactions between Plasma Physicists and Biologists and Medical doctors are of primary importance, but limited knowledge in the ‘other’ field can lead to valuable collaborations from the other side. The acquisition of basic elements from both sides is extremely beneficial. The Summer School on Plasma Medicine is dedicated to Plasma Physicist “Beginners” in biology and for Biologist and Medical doctors “Beginners” in Plasma physics. The aim is to acquire

  • simple notions of biology and main treated diseases for Plasma Physicists
  • simple notions of plasma physics for Biologists and Medical doctors in a common series of lectures dedicated for the beginners of both great domains.

The lecturers will pay attention to give easy access presentations for non-experts. A large place will be given for the questions and for the exchanges between the participants. The lectures will be 75 minutes long, including questions, and will cover elements of plasma physics, plasma diagnostics, biology from cells to diseases, diagnostics and methods in biology, and, in some points, present the plasma proposed solutions. The school is organized by the International Society for Plasma Medicine (ISPM)  (Satoshi Hamaguchi) and is open for academics (all levels) and for colleagues from the industry.

Who should attend: those who are interested in learning fundamental disciplines in plasma medicine, regardless of their academic backgrounds. New graduate students who have started/plan to work on plasma medicine are encouraged to attend.
