Biophysical Society Meeting

Biophysical Meeting booth poster

The 60th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society will be held on February 27-March 2, 2016, in Los Angeles, California.

Many lab members attend the meeting and present posters and talks.

The Biological Fluorescence Subgroup is chaired by Enrico Gratton.

The LFD organizes an exhibitor booth, where visitors are informed about the LFDs research and service facilities. The LFD Workshop and Weber Symposium are advertised and Globals software is demonstrated and distributed.


Welcome to the LFD

The Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics (LFD) is a national research resource center for biomedical fluorescence spectroscopy, supported by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS, 8P41GM103540) divisions of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the University of California, Irvine (UCI).

The founder and Principal Investigator of the LFD is Enrico Gratton. The Co-Investigator is Michelle Digman.

The LFD's main activities are:

  • Services and Resources: the LFD provides a state-of-the-art laboratory for fluorescence measurements, microscopy and spectroscopy, with technical assistance to visiting scientists.
  • Research and Development: the LFD designs, tests, and implements advances in the technology of hardware, software, and biomedical applications.
  • Training and Dissemination: the LFD disseminates knowledge of fluorescence spectroscopic principles, instrumentation, and applications to the scientific community.
