Welcome to ICTPPO2015

International Conference on Tetrapyrrole Photoreceptors of Photosynthetic Organisms (ICTPPO)


Kibbutz HaGoshrim Resort Hotel

Upper Galilee, Israel

October 11 – 15, 2015


The International Conference on Tetrapyrrole Photoreceptors of Photosynthetic Organisms (ICTPPO) has been held every two years since 1991 in different locales around the world. ICTPPO 2015 will be held in Israel's northern region of the Upper Galilee. As in previous years, ICTPPO 2015 will provide a unique niche and communication hub to a diverse community of researchers from many fields sharing a strong interest in tetrapyrrole pigments - the molecular heart of most light response and light-energy conversion processes.

The main topics to be covered are:

  • Chlorophyll metabolism
  • Synthesis and assembly of tetrapyrrole-protein complexes
  • Tetrapyrrole signaling
  • Molecular structure of tetrapyrrole-protein complexes
  • Photosynthetic light harvesting and electron transfer
  • Applications to solar energy conversion

The conference venue, Kibbutz HaGoshrim, is situated in the pastoral landscape of the northern Hula valley, in an area known as the "Land of Brooks and Streams".  This is one of Israel's major tourism regions, offering many activities and natural attractions.

ICTPPO 2015 is an excellent opportunity for young researchers and students to interact with leading experts from around the world.  It offers exposure to cutting edge research and recent discoveries as well as the chance to engage in critical discussions on the state of the art, future challenges and opportunities in research of tetrapyrroles, their roles and metabolism in photosynthetic organisms.

We are looking forward to meeting you at ICTPPO 2015!

The Organizing Committee,

Dror Noy – Migal Galilee Research Institute

Noam Adir – Technion Israel Institute of Technology

Yoram Eyal - The Volcani Center, ARO

Ziv Reich – Weizmann Institute of Science
