Photodynamic Therapy and Photodiagnosis update
October 24 - 28, 2016
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
We sincerely thank you for attending PDT2016 and for your active involvement !
We were 215 participants.
It was our pleasure and an honor to welcome all of you in Nancy at the first symposium devoted to all aspects of clinical Photodynamic Therapy. This Symposium has been elaborated so as to keep the spirit of the former conferences of Brixen (Italy), while incorporating talks from experts of the PDT community.
This Symposium was particularly dedicated to our friend Guilio Jori.
The Symposium, with more than 170 scientific presentations, addresses all aspects of PDT: experimental, translational research and clinical applications. We thank you all for your contributions which will make the success of this event.
We would like to thank, particularly, colleagues coming from other continents. We know that it was a long trip to get to Nancy.
We also thank our sponsors for their financial support, this allowed us to organize a very interesting social program and make you discover the treasures of Nancy and the specialties of Lorraine
PDT2016 was a great experience for our team and we hope that you enjoyed both the scientific and cultural aspects of this symposium.
Very soon, we will add pictures of the conference on the website as well as talks of the speakers who allowed us to do so.
We wish all the best to the organizing team of PDT 2018.
and look forward to seeing you in Coimbra in 2017.
The Organizing Committee.

We miss our friend, the great scientist, a leader in photobiology, hi humor, his cute italian accent, his understanding of good as well as difficulte life.
