Meetings and workshops

2019 edition of the Tutorial in Macromolecular Crystallography - 04 to 08 March 2019 - EPN Campus

Fundamental aspects of crystallography will be treated in theoretical sessions and 3 practical sessions of 2h each which will treat case studies. The tutorial will be given in English. The theoretical sessions will be a mix of lecture and problem solving (rather basic, more of the pencil and paper type).
The tutorial (limited to 20 participants) is aimed in the first place at graduate students at Université Grenoble-Alpes and on EPN campus who have a priority in registration. The tutorial counts for 3 ECTS credits needed for the "Ecole doctorale" of the UGA.
The tutorial is furthermore open to post-docs and staff of the EPN / PSB partners.

Advances Isotopic Labeling Methods for Integrated Structural Biology International Workshop (AILM 2019) - March 26th to 29 th, 2019 - EPN Campus Grenoble

The AILM workshop will focus on the development of isotopic labelling techniques and their application to the study of biomolecular structure and dynamics. Conference sessions covered developments in isotopic labelling strategies for NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, neutron scattering and diffraction, as well as methodological approaches, such as co-expression, segmental labelling, specific labelling, labelling with paramagnetic tags, and sample production in vitro or in eukaryotic cells. The program also included elegant examples of the application of these methods to challenging systems such as high molecular weight proteins and nucleic acids complexes or direct studies of biomacromolecules in cells or tissues.

A Symposium in honor of Dr. Dominique MARION’s retirement will take place on Monday March 25th 2019 and a practical school will follow the international workshop from March 29 to April 05.

Biology at different scales - 2019 May 27 - June 7 - Spring school in Les Houches, France

This school focuses on the interplay between physics and biology to understand biological processes at different scales, from the molecular level to living organisms. The school is aimed at PhD students and early-stage researchers trained in various fields and with an interest in biology. Participants are shown how a biological problem can be tackled using an integrated approach. The school also aims at showing how physics and mathematics can contribute to model biological processes.

The interplay between physics and biology is illustrated on two research fields:

  • Plant morphogenesis from genes to flowers
  • Exocytosis, morphology and transport at the synapse

This school, co-organized by R. Jahn, H. Nury, F. Parcy, E. Pebay-Peyroula, will take place near Chamonix (Les Houches, France) in June 2019.
