The programmed activities for Prof. Desideri during his stay with us includes participation in many of ours planning of new experiments to study metal-complexes and biomolecules interactions (DNA and proteins), discussion of results, active involvement in our Seminars, that occur weekly, and participation in the discipline QFL 5801 Copper Proteins and Metabolism of Copper, that I will offer at IQ-USP to graduate students in the period August to October, 2012. Prof. Desideri will give classes in August, mainly about spectroscopy of copper proteins. (AU)
