Summer School Glyco - July 02 to 04, 2018 - Grenoble


The 2018 edition of the Structural Glycosciences Summer School will be held from 2nd to 4 of July at IBS on EPN campus and at CERMAV on UGA campus. The Summer School is co-organized by the Glyco@Alps CDP project from Idex UGA and the EEC network PhD4GlycoDrug (F. Fieschi & C. Laguri, IBS and A.Imberty & A. Varrot, CERMAV).
Glycoscience is a rapidly expanding and exciting field that is relevant to many areas of chemistry, biology and medicine. Structures of Glycan or Protein/Glycans complexes are of direct importance since they are key structural elements in cell and in signalling events on their surface. The workshop will introduce and train young scientists, from a chemistry or biology background, in the most up-to-date approaches for determining the structural and dynamic properties of carbohydrates, glycan binding receptors, and analysis of their complexes. Young researchers from Grenoble and from whole Europe will have conferences from international speakers, will participle to hands-on in modeling and experimental techniques, and will visit the beam lines at ERSF.

ESONN 2018 - August 26th to September 15th 2018 - Grenoble

From 2004, ESONN is a three-week course aimed at providing training for graduate students, postdoctoral and junior scientists from universities and laboratories, all around the world, in the field of Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies. The academic and practical courses will cover aspects such as the elaboration, characterization and functionalities of nano-objects.The program emphasizes the role of laboratory courses (half of the program is devoted to practical work).
IBS scientists are involved in practical courses for the biological session:

  • "Proteins and nanoparticle assemblies and interactions by AUC and SEC/MALS" by Christine Ebel & Aline Le Roy (IBS/M&P) - PDF
  • "Cell imaging analysis of protein interactions and dynamics in living cells" by Françoise Lacroix, Joanna Timmins & Jean‐Philippe Kleman (IBS/IRPAS) - PDF
  • "Study of biomolecular interactions by surface plasmon resonance biosensor analysis (BIAcore technology)" by Jean-Baptiste Resiser (IBS/IRPAS) - PDF
  • " Cryo-Electron Microscopy: sample preparation and visualization using a Polara and a Krios electron microscope both equipped with a direct electron detector" by Guy Schoehn and Isai Kandiah, IBS and ESRF - PDF

"Neutrons and Biology" School - 16 to 19 september 2018 - Carqueiranne

The 2018 edition of the thematic School of the Neutron French Society (SFN) will be dedicated to "Neutrons and Biology" and will take place in Carqueiranne (France) on September 16-19, 2018.
The School "Neutrons and Biology" will present an overview of the use of neutrons to probe the structure and dynamics of biological systems. Lectures will be presented by researchers from neutron international facilities and from academia and will include basic tutorials on the principles of neutron diffraction and scattering, a description of the neutron sources and instrumentation, as well as seminars on the application of neutron diffraction and scattering to different biological subjects. Students will also be introduced to the reduction, analysis and interpretation of experimental data and to the writing of an experimental proposal.
The target audience includes graduate students, PhD students and postdocs or experienced scientists not familiar with the application of neutrons to biology.
The list of topics includes:
- Neutron diffraction/crystallography
- Neutron reflectometry
- Elastic, quasielastic and inelastic neutron scattering
- Small angle neutron scattering
- Integrated approaches
- Industrial applications

All details can be found on the school website.
The deadline for the registration is the 30th June 2018.

This school, promoted by the French Neutron Society (SFN), is co-organized by IBS, ILL & LLB. G. Schirò (IBS/DYNAMOP) is part of the Organizing Committee and will give a lecture.
