Nuclear Analytical Methods

17–22 April 2005
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The 8th International Conference on Nuclear Analytical Methods in the Life Sciences (NAMLS) will be held 17–22 April 2005, in Rio de Janeiro. This is one of a series of international conferences organized to promote the development and application of nuclear and related analytical methods in the life sciences.

The life sciences encompass a broad range of disciplines including agriculture, biology, biochemistry, botany, bio(medical) technology, cosmetics, environment, food processing, life systems technologies, medicine, microbiology, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, radiation biology, virology, and zoology. Nuclear analytical methods involve techniques utilizing properties of the nucleus (like activation analysis, radiotracer studies, mass spectrometry), or combinations of nuclear and electronic properties (like NMR, Mössbauer spectroscopy). X-ray fluorescence spectrometry and PIXE are related techniques that use similar equipment.

The conference will address the following life-science topics:

  • innovation and metrology
  • human and animal health and disease
  • environmental studies
  • food chain

Following is a list of selected lecture titles:

  • “Clinical and Occupational Medicine Using Nuclear Analytical Methods,” Vladimir Zaichik
  • “Country Reports on the Use of Nuclear Analytical Methods in the Life Sciences in Latin America,” Dr. Matthias Rossbach
  • “Environmental Sources of Pollution,” Paulo Artaxo
  • “Health Effects of Aerosols,” Reynaldo Luiz Victoria
  • “Low-Level Trace-Element Analysis,” Rolf Zeisler
  • “Metrology As Applied to the Use of Nuclear Analytical Methods in the Life Sciences,” Kaj Heydorn
  • “Nuclear Analytical Methods in Agriculture and in Food Research and Production,” Epaminondas S. B. Ferraz
  • “Quality Control and Reference Materials,” Robert Greenberg
  • “Trace Elements in Health and Disease with Special Reference to Selenium,” Dietrich Behne
