Dear Colleagues,
we hereby announce a 4-day workshop on Integrating X-ray crystallography and
scattering together with Electron Microscopy. The course is funded by i-NEXT and
will be held at NOVA ITQB, Oeiras (nearby Lisbon), Portugal, May 2 to 5,

The course covers a multidisciplinary approach to study the structure of
challenging proteins, focusing on membrane proteins and large complexes.
The basic principles will be provided for each addressed technique
(Macromolecular Crystallography, Small Angle Scattering and Electron
Microscopy); their applications in biological systems, major benefits and
limitations will also be discussed.

The Workshop is organized with lectures in the mornings followed by
hands-on training. The course is aimed primarily at PhD students and young
Post-Doctoral researchers interested in Structural Biology. Confirmed
speakers are Jose Maria Carazo, Haydyn Mertens and Isabel de Moraes.

Participants will be limited to 20. Candidate selection will be based on a
short CV, a motivation letter from the applicant, and a recommendation
letter from the supervisor.

Registration deadline is February 23. Please send your application to
combstruct2016 at itqb.unl.pt <mailto:combstruct2016 at itqb.unl.pt>. Registration fee is 180 Eur including
accommodation. More information can be found at
