Invitation letter from the Conference Chairs to join the “Photodynamic Therapy and Photodiagnosis Update” conference which will take place from September 19th to 22nd 2018 at Kochel am See, an hour drive south of Munich, Germany:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

following the tradition initiated in 1996 by Guilio Jori and Herwig Kostron, the 2nd post Brixen (Italy) Symposium PDT & PD Update 2018 will bring together students, researchers and clinicians working in all fields of photodynamic therapy (PDT) and photodiagnosis (PD) to foster the scientific developments in this field thus contributing to widespread use. While presenting interdisciplinary lectures and posters the Brixen-Spirit could be tasted and experienced during your intercultural discussions bringing young and elder attendees together, new friendships and relations can be founded.

Located in Southern Bavaria, Kochel am See offers impressive scenic views as well as interesting activities for relaxation. After hard work during the conference days, it depends on you to attend the first weekend of the Munich-October-Fest (22.09.-07.10.2018) while still being accommodated in Kochel am See.


PDT & PD Update 2018 offers sponsors the unique opportunity to have decisive PDT researchers and clinicians at the same spot. We appreciate your valuable contribution to make the conference an even better forum for the progress of PDT and PD.

We look forward to seeing you in Kochel am See 2018!
