7th International Conference
Photosynthesis Research for Sustainability - 2016 
June 19-26, 2016 
in honor of Nathan Nelson and T. Nejat Veziroglu 
Pushchino, Russia 

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to cordially invite you to 7th International Meeting 
"Photosynthesis Research for Sustainability - 2016"
in honor of Nathan Nelson and T. Nejat Veziroglu

The meeting will be held  in Pushchino, Russia from June 19 to 25, 2016 
Your participation is important for the success of the Meeting, and will be very much appreciated. This Meeting will be a great occasion for discussions of previous, present, and future research on photosynthesis, from molecular to global, and will provide an exciting scientific program, which will cover the breadth and depth of photosynthesis, and to meet researchers of Photosynthesis from around the world. This meeting will provide a forum for students, postdoctoral fellows and scientists from different countries to deepen their knowledge and understanding, widen professional contact, to create new opportunities and establish new collaborations
