Summer School in “Photosensitive drugs: from therapies to instability, loss of activity and toxicity”.

The Summer School in “Shaping a World Class University-Virtual Summer & Winter Schools / Blended and face-toface Summer & Winter Schools” for the year 2023 (July 17th - 21st 2023)is organized by the two Faculties of Pharmacy involved of the University of Padova and University of Granada on behalf the Arqus project and the funds of the University of Padova for a Summer-Winter school.
The school will provide the basic principles of photobiology and photochemistry of photosensitizing biomolecules as well as their applications in drug phototherapy and photodiagnosis. In particular, the lectures will be focused on UV light (from cells to skin tissue, DNA damage, Vit. D effects); Photomedicine; Photodynamic therapy and fluorescence diagnosis; Photopharmacology; Photodermatology; Photoprotection; Biochemistry upon light; Photostability of drugs.
The school will be open to MSc students in Pharmacy and Biology and to PhD-students interested in the field of Drugs, Pharmacology, Biochemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Therapies and Diagnosis.
Most of the lecturers are teachers of the two Departments involved and experts of the European Society for Photobiology (www.photobiology.eu), a stimulating community of photobiologists belonging to a European scientific association that promotes photobiology among members and scientists all around the world.
At the end of the school, a certificate of participation will be given to the students who have passed the final test.
