On behalf of the organizers it is our privilege to invite you to the Joint Australia-Croatia Workshop on Antimicrobial Peptides. The workshop will be held at the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences (MedILS) in Split, Croatia, 8-13 Aug 2010, and is organized by the University of Split, Faculty of Science,with participation of MedILS. Together with several other local institutions, the two have recently established an international PhD programme in biophysics at the University of Split. The workshop is an official summer school for the students in the programme, with additional wider participation.
The workshop is not limited to Australian and Croatian researchers, but is open to researchers and post-graduate students from other countries and has broad scope with respect to membrane-active peptides. We would be very grateful if you would inform your friends and colleagues whom you think would be interested in the Workshop.
The total number of participants is limited to about forty. Since invited lecturers and local doctoral students already fill approximately half of the anticipated number of participants, we urge all interested researchers to express their interest promptly.
