Spring registration deadlines for FEBS Advanced Courses 2018
FEBS Advanced Courses provide excellent opportunities to deepen your understanding of a topic, get up to speed with new developments, and make contact with others interested in the same research questions. Below, we highlight upcoming events that have registration deadlines in March and April. Explore the speaker line-ups and more details on the event websites!
FEBS Youth Travel Fund (YTF) grants are available to financially support the participation of young scientists in these events.
FEBS PRACTICAL COURSES
Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization VIII
Nove Hrady, Czech Republic
June 10‒16, 2018
The practical crystallization course is in fact the eighth run of the FEBS practical courses named “Advanced methods in macromolecular crystallization“, organized since 2004 at the Academic and University Center at Nove Hrady. The planned course (for undergraduate, postgraduate students and postdocs with an interest in macromolecular crystallization) is rather different from the established courses in protein crystallization. The course is designed to bring over the message of the benefits of more rational approaches to macromolecular crystallization and is aimed at a healthy mixture of advanced theoretical discussions and laboratory experiments. To achieve this goal, we have invited a number of prominent experts in the field as a teachers and tutors.
Organizer: Ivana Kuta Smatanova. Co-organizers: Pavlina Rezacova, Juan Manuel Garcia-Ruiz
Deadline for applications: March 31, 2018
FEBS PRACTICAL AND LECTURE COURSE
Ligand-binding theory and practice
Nove Hrady, Czech Republic
June 24 ‒ July 1, 2018
This course offers basic training in principles of ligand-binding theory, and allows students to analyse their own macromolecular interaction systems using the contemporary advanced methods of surface plasmon resonance, isothermal titration calorimetry, fluorescence spectroscopy, and microscale thermophoresis, guided by experts in the design, execution, and analysis of those experiments. Additional methods are introduced in lectures. The course is intended for students at the graduate or early postdoctoral level.
Organizer: Rüdiger Ettrich
Deadline for applications: April 1, 2018
FEBS ADVANCED LECTURE COURSES
50 years of molecular life sciences with FEBS Letters
May 24‒25, 2018
FEBS Letters is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018. To mark the occasion, we are organizing a scientific symposium featuring twenty-eight exceptional scientists (such as James Rothman, Noboru Mizushima, Joan Massagué or Manajit Hayer-Hartl), who contributed to the success of FEBS Letters in various ways. The scope is broad and particularly suited to young scientists interested in widening their views and learning about diverse scientific topics first hand by experts in the field
Organizer: Felix Wieland
Deadline for applications: YTFs, March 15, 2018; Registration, April 15, 2018
The molecular basis of diseases: can we infer phenotypes from protein variant analysis?
May 23‒25, 2018
The workshop will present the state-of-the-art of computational methods for elucidating how genetic variations affect protein expression, structure, stability and interaction patterns and how they possibly hamper biological processes and pathways, in order to fill the gap between genotype and phenotype. The format of the workshop allows extensive interaction among students and lecturers, and offers to young researchers the possibility of presenting their work in poster sessions and with a short selected talk.
Organizer: Pier Luigi Martelli
Deadline for applications: April 29, 2018
