22nd Congress of the French Membrane Group - March 14 to 17, 2023 - Autrans (France)

The 22nd congress of the French Membrane Group (GEM) will be held for the first time in the French Alps from 14th to 17th March 2023 at the Escandille Village Vacances, Autrans, France.
GEM brings together researchers, biologists, biochemists, biophysicists, physicists and chemists interested in biological phenomena associated with membranes at all levels, from the organ to the molecule.
The meeting will focus on the structure, dynamics and function of membranes and will be locally organised by researchers from different institutes situated in Grenoble where several well-known European and national research facilities are located.
The GEM conference covers the following topics : Structural biology, Host-pathogen interactions, Nanomedecine, Computational methods, Molecular interations at the membrane surface, Interaction lipids/polymers/membrane proteins, Glycobiology

  • Registration and abstract submission :
  • Deadline for abstract submission : 4th December 2022.
  • Deadline for final registration : 31st January 2023.

Hercules European School - 27 february to 31 march 2023 - Grenoble

This one month course, coordinated by the Université Grenoble Alpes, is designed to provide training for students, postdoctoral and senior scientists from European and non-European universities and laboratories, in the field of Neutron and Synchrotron Radiation for condensed matter studies (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, Geosciences, Industrial applications). Neutron and X-ray science is integrated with complementary techniques like (but not only) optical and electron microscopy, NMR, optical and THz spectroscopy. It includes lectures, practicals and tutorials, visits of Large Facilities (ALBA in Barcelona, KIT in Karlsruhe, DESY and European XFEL in Hamburg, Elettra and FERMI in Trieste, ESRF and ILL in Grenoble, SOLEIL in Paris-Saclay, and PSI in Villigen) and a poster session. The language of the course is English.
The course is held in Grenoble at the Polygone Scientifique Louis Néel. This is close to partner institutions where practicals and tutorials will take place (EMBL, ESRF, IBS, ILL, CEA, CNRS).
The school includes a common part and two parallel sessions :
- Biomolecular, soft condensed matter structure & dynamics
- Physics and chemistry of condensed matter
G. Schiro (IBS/DYNAMOP) is deputy director of the HERCULES school for the biology session and many IBS scientists give lectures and tutorials.
For details, please have a look on the website of the course.
The application to HERCULES 2023 will close on 15th October 2022.
