Welcome to the “Principles of light-induced charge transfer for optogenetics” workshop!

The Workshop will be held online from June 14 to June 16, 2021.

The workshop focuses on the the discussion of state-of-the-art theoretical approaches to treat
photoinduced charge transfer processes in light-sensitive proteins that are currently exploited in
optogenetic tools. Attention is also devoted to the experimental probing of such events.

Leading scientists from the fields of excited state properties of biological matter and charge transfer
processes in proteins
, and in particular in rhodopsins and flavin-containing domains, will share and
discuss their theoretical and experimental approaches.

Current optogenetic challenges will be faced from a chemicophysical perspective, highlighting the
main achievements and open questions in this timely and stimulating research field.
