6th School of Integrative Structural Biology - June 21 to 28, 2019 - Oleron

This school, organized by RéNaFoBIS (Réseau National de Formation en Biologie Structurale Intégrative), aims at providing training for graduate students in the field of Integrative Structural biology.
D. Housset (IBS/IRAPS group) is co-organizer. IBS scientists (Catherine Bougault (IBS/NMR) and Dominique Housset) will give lectures and tutorials. To know more (in french only).

PSB Symposium "Macromolecules in action " - 04 & 05 July 2019 - EPN Campus

After the success of its first symposium on cryo-EM in 2017, the Partnership for Structural Biology (PSB) is pleased to announce a second symposium on "Macromolecules in action " which will take place on 4-5 July 2019 on the EPN campus

The aim of this meeting is to illustrate how the big biological questions are resolved by combining key methods in structural biology (eg X-ray and neutron crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR and small angle scattering - SAXS and SANS) with other complementary approaches, enhancing our understanding of the dynamic behaviour of macromolecular complexes in the cell.

To know more about the programme, call for abstracts, PSB Young investigator’s award, venue and registration, please consult the dedicated website.

11th AFM BioMed 2019 International Summer School - October 21-25, 2019 - IBS

The AFMBioMed International Summer School offers an introduction to atomic force microscopy in life and health sciences. Students, post-doctoral fellows, researchers, technicians and platform engineers come to deepen their knowledge but also to learn about new cutting-edge developments both at the instrumental and application levels. The school covers both fundamentals and expert questions with the possibility for students to bring their own samples. This summer school allows, thanks to the AFMBioMed network, to make contacts and establish scientific collaborations between all participants and supervisors. The school runs for a full week, usually from Monday to Saturday and includes morning classes (10 x 1h30) and practical work in the afternoons (between 4 and 5 hours per group each afternoon). Depending on the number of machines available, the school targets about 20 students. This school is organized in collaboration with the ILL and the European project ITN Phys2BioMed.
