The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Georgia State University is hosting the 2nd North American Photosynthesis Congress (aPS2) June 3-6, 2024, at the Urban Life Building (140 Decatur St.).

Topics Covered:

The conference will explore a wide range of photosynthesis research areas, including the structure and mechanisms of reaction centers, water oxidation, electron and proton fluxes, light harvesting in various systems, photosynthetic acclimation, biogenesis and maintenance of the photosynthetic apparatus, engineering photosynthesis in plants and microbes, aquatic photosynthesis, ecophysiology, and the impacts of climate change on photosynthesis.

Event Highlights:

  • Keynote lectures by international experts.
  • Focused symposia with invited and selected speakers.
  • Poster sessions and discussion sessions.
  • Best poster awards.

Public Lecture:

Rachael Morgan-Kiss, O’Toole Family Professor at Miami University (Ohio), will deliver a public lecture titled "Photosynthesis on the Edge: The Wild Frontier of a Polar Desert" Monday, June 3, at 3:30 p.m. in 220 Urban Life. The lecture will explore the adaptation strategies of green algae in the extreme conditions of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, focusing on the physiological and molecular studies of Chlamydomonas priscuii and Chlamydomonas sp. ICE-MDV. The implications for physiological plasticity in the face of climate change will also be discussed.

Join us for this comprehensive event covering the latest advancements and research in photosynthesis.
