Gregorio Weber is generally stated because the individual liable for the arrival of contemporary fluorescence spectroscopy. given that 2016 is the 100th anniversary of Gregorio Weber’s delivery, this distinct quantity has been ready to honor his lifestyles and achievements. It bargains contributions from notable researchers within the fluorescence box, describing their views on glossy fluorescence and its hugely various purposes, starting from the photophysics of tryptophan and proteins, membrane stories, fluorescence microscopy on dwell cells, novel software program methods and instrumentation. a few of the authors knew Gregorio Weber in my opinion and feature shared their impressions of the fellow and his contributions. This quantity appeals not just to aficionados of fluorescence spectroscopy and its functions in biology, chemistry and physics, but in addition to these with a normal curiosity within the ancient improvement of a major clinical field.

At that time I was back in Argentina, working at the University in Bahı´a Blanca. It occurred to me to phone Dr. Podolski again. ” It was a very generous sum for local standards. It is only now, through my research on Gregorio, that I learn Dr. Podolski was the very same Miguel Podolski who was one of Gregorio’s “inner circle” during his medical school years in Buenos Aires! During my stay in G€ottingen, Gregorio’s influence continued. , [18, 19]), we synthesized 1-pyrene butyryl-choline (PBC).

Julio J. Rossignoli was in charge of Biological Physics at the Institute of Physiology. More interestingly, Dr. Dora Potick was studying the physicochemical alterations of blood serum by snake venoms. This is the closest thematic approximation to Gregorio’s thesis subject. We do not know whether any of these scientists played a role in Gregorio’s thesis, but they were likely to be knowledgeable in some aspects of the work. In my view Gregorio’s first thesis is a cauldron in which the embryonic stages of his views on macroscopic and microscopic viscosities were concocted, and which he addressed years later after developing the appropriate fluorescence polarization tools (Figs.
